A!R Opening Exhibition Reception with Nour Bishouty

- 51 Camden St
Nour Bishouty is an artist working in a range of media including works on paper, digital images, sculpture, video, and writing. Her work engages with marginal narratives to pose questions around dissonance and opacity, especially in histories overwritten by dispossession and displacement. Notes for a Guest Book is an installation acting as foreword for an artist book by Nour Bishouty, the October Artist in Residence. Selected parts of the thinking, conversations, research, and process that took place in the weeks after, during, and coming up to her residency are revealed here through a gathering of images and texts which considers the figure of the hotel as an omnipresent spectre always appearing as a witness which exists on the inside of an imagined perimeter and on the outside of an established law.
This exhibition is a part of our year-long partnership with Images Festival.
About our partner
Images Festival is a platform for the exhibition and discourse of independent film and media art. Created in 1987 as the only alternative film festival in Toronto at the time, Images has spent the last 36 years presenting media works that are challenging in their form and content. The festival showcases the intersection of emerging and established practices, and invites open critical dialogue in the film and media arts community around the political histories of moving image production, distribution, exhibition and representation.
