Exploring curating and art making as a methodology that suggests the human condition is more complex than it is currently understood, Ally Zlatar examines, instigates and provokes notions of the individual experience through specifically focusing on philosophical discourse, body image, embodiment, animals and ethics. Zlatar acknowledges there is power within the un-well body and believes there is tremendous value potency through examining these subjects through the contemporary art lens. Born in Mississauga, Canada, she holds a BFA in Visual Art and Art History from Queen's University and an MLitt Curatorial Practice from the Glasgow School of Art. Ally is now pursuing her Doctorate of Creative Arts with the University of Southern Queensland. She has been involved in many exhibitions and has had personal work shown globally. Additionally, she has worked on many curation projects with such galleries as Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Hunterian Art Gallery and Glasgow's Centre for Contemporary Art. She is continuously interpreting her desire to communicate and facilitate the theoretical concepts of art as it is highly valuable to her, and her practice strives to make a difference in society.During May 2020, Zlatar presented her research project The Starving Artist on our website and Instagram.
