When all our worlds are shattered, where do the pieces go? Where do our songs run? Where are we in the demolished homes, the renamed streets, the gardens encoded with new data?

Settler-colonialism ruptures the multiple worlds that people inhabit; destabilizing a community’s physical, social, and spiritual complexity and continuity. Using photography, digital imaging, and personal archives, «please wait...Loading Falasteen» explores how memory, belonging, survival, and resistance can manifest across these seemingly broken interfaces. By blurring the lines between the real, virtual, and imagined, these works mirror Palestinian ingenuity in resistance, and subvert the Israeli regime's ongoing and uncanny violence upon Palestine’s lives and land.

BIOGRAPHY

Shatha Al-Husseini is a Palestinian artist by way of Jerusalem (her baba) and Gaza (her mama). Now based in Tkaronto, she was born in Saudi Arabia and raised both there and Nova Scotia. Shatha’s interdisciplinary practice is rooted in making art and community spaces that are connective, restorative, and ultimately (hopefully) transformative through collaboration. This has included playing with poetry and performance in dusty institutions, facilitating group meals for storytelling and relationship building, and growing a curatorial practice that prioritizes BIPOC artist leadership and community-oriented spaces.

— A note on accessibility: there is a ramp at the door, but only one washroom which is down a flight of stairs. On behalf of the architects of the past who, by these design oversights, have left out many people, we apologize. Accessible washrooms are available down the street in 24 hour McDonalds at Queen & Roncesvalles. Gender neutral bathrooms on site.

We intend for the MOEG to be a safe space for people of all races, genders, abilities, ages, cultures, and sexualities. Any form of discrimination including, but not limited to racist, homophobic, transphobic, sexist language or behaviour will not be tolerated. If at any time you are made to feel uncomfortable or unsafe, please let one of our team members know, or email [email protected]

CUE is a radical arts initiative dedicated to providing funding and support for new-generation artists who live and work on the margins in Toronto. Since 2008, the initiative has provided almost $300,000 in high-access grants to support the creation of more than 290 art projects.

The MOEG is a project of CUE: a multidisciplinary arts space dedicated to showcasing the work of new generation artists aged 15-29 who live and work on the margins. Some of the most important artwork is being created by artists who experience social, cultural, and economic marginalization, and systemic barriers can preclude many relevant artists from contributing to our cultural narrative. The MOEG is a space to engage with these artists and their work--an environment where communities that have been excluded within the arts can be recognized and represented.
