Maryanne Casasanta is an artist educator working in photography, video, and performance. Central to her practice is the relationship between art and home, and art and life. Often documented through photo or video, performances of light gestures and subtle interventions propose ways of transforming a routine experience, promoting an active immersion in, and reconsideration of, small, ordinary events. Maryanne observes other areas of research including, process-based learning and art making, co-creation, and movement, which she explores by working alongside artists across a number of fields. She has exhibited widely and her projects have been supported by the Ontario Arts Council and Toronto Arts Council. Maryanne earned a BFA from OCAD University (2005) and holds an MFA from the University of Guelph (2014). She is currently a Master of Education candidate in the collaborative Curriculum, Teaching and Learning and Educational Policy program at the University of Toronto.
