Mani Mazinani (b.1984, Iran) is a Toronto-based artist working in installation, video, film, photographs, multiples and sound. His practice evolved from an early interest in sound recording, and now explores the process of translating thoughts into recordings. His visual work is concerned with scale and perception, often combining subject matter and medium. In 2019, his Aerophone Recordings label will issue the LP Shift, made in collaboration with Sanaz Mazinani and Michael Snow. Recent exhibitions and performances include Tehran International Electronic Music Festival (2017); Suzhou Industrial Park Culture & Expo Square (2016); Asian Art Museum, San Francisco (2015); and CAB Art Centre, Brussels (2013). His collaborations with Michael Snow, including music, performance, video, installation and sound, have been ongoing since 2002.

Over the last six decades, his practice has explored the characteristics of a range of media, raising questions of time, movement and perception. As a professional jazz pianist, Snow performs solo as well as with various ensembles, including his long-standing collaboration CCMC. He has had extensive exhibitions and retrospectives of his films and art at prestigious institutions the world over. Snow has been honoured with numerous awards, including the Order of Canada, the first Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts for cinema and the Gershon Iskowitz Prize at the Art Gallery of Ontario.
