About the artists

Asal Andarzipour: “I identify as an immigrant artist walking in my nomad ancestors’ shoes. My long journey across the ocean from Tehran to New York and then Alberta continues to inform and form my creative profile. Since 2015, I have actively served in arts and culture non-profits, and have evolved into a visual artist and designer, curator and an art educator. I hold an MFA from Syracuse University and an MA in History of Art, Design and Visual Culture from the University of Alberta. I also play Tombak, a Persian wooden gublet drum. My artistic career and activism as an Iranian woman in the diaspora are integrated into my daily life. Over the years, drawing has remained an inseparable part of my practice in between artistic disciplines.”

Michael Reinhart, a graduate of The Ontario College of Art in1976, has experience in both visual arts & music. With long-time collaborator Lin Snelling, he has designed stages, lighting, music & video installations for the multidisciplinary performances ‘Woman As Landscape’ & ‘extinction’ produced by Carbone 14 in Montréal, & more recently ‘Performing Book’, ‘versing’, ‘eva’ & ‘A Sounding Line’ in Edmonton. They were commissioned in late 2020, by New Music Edmonton, to create a video, ‘far off & personal’. Since 1982, he has collaborated with various musicians, dancers, poets, choreographers & directors. He created an original music score for Before Tomorrow, winner of Best First Feature at TIFF in 2008. Michael toured extensively as a guitarist-singer-songwriter, having released six albums, among them lost&found; eCHO; Cyprus Songs; extinction & Night Traffic. Michael formed the improvisation trio Status Quoi in 2006, with whom he continues to collaborate periodically. Michael has a visual art practice when not composing new instrumental guitar works.
