This exhibition brings together performance work that asks the viewer to consider how bodies, actions and images produce meaning in particular geopolitical spaces. Showcasing prominent and emerging contemporary artists currently living and working in Palestine, Live in Palestine focuses on work that combines performative practices with political engagement, addressing some of the complexities of living in occupied Palestine.
Curated by Anna Khimasia (Los Angeles), Stefan St-Laurent (Gatineau) and Rehab Nazzal (Bethlehem), Live in Palestine was initiated at the Art & Resistance conference in Dar al-Kalima University (Bethlehem). Organized by AXENÉO7 in partnership with DAÏMÔN (Gatineau) and A Space Gallery (Toronto).
