Nour Bishouty in Conversation With Swapnaa Tamhane
- Posted on
PAST | September 27 from 6-8pm
Our programming partners @artmetropole and @maktaba.bookshop will open this years program on Sept 27. Join artist Nour Bishouty in conversation with Swapnaa Tamhane, to discuss Bishouty’s recent artist book, published by Art Metropole. 1—130 draws upon the work of her late father, artist Ghassan Bishouty (b. 1941 Palestine – d. 2004, Jordan). Borrowing from museological methods of indexing and object classification to lend her father's history and work a form of pseudo-visibility and order, Bishouty simultaneously unsettles structural conventions and permeates her father’s artworks and ephemera with her own acts of collage, ekphrasis, and storytelling.
Montreal-based artist and curator Swapnaa Tamhane will join us to discuss the book, its making and where it is situated in Bishouty’s wider practice.
