Scott Sørli’s trans-disciplinary practice unearths moments when form and matter engage the economic and political forces that produce the city. As well as serving on the board of YYZ Artists’ Outlet, for six years he was co-curator of convenience, a window gallery that provided an opening for art that engaged, experimented, and took risks with the architectural, urban, and civic realms. Sørli has an extensive exhibition, publication, time-based programming, and architectural practice. He is also chair of the City of Toronto’s peace subcommittee of the Nathan Phillips Square Community Advisory Committee. With professional degrees in architecture (Toronto) and engineering (Waterloo) as well as a post-grad in design research (Michigan), Sørli has taught architecture at several institutions, most recently in Jakarta, Cambridge, and Toronto.
