Post Image presents Palestinian artist Rehab Nazzal, in the fourth installment of Moving the Landscape to Find Ground, a cycle of artist talks and artist residencies which takes place until May 2023. This series is built from a shared ambition to break open lens-based practices via the interrogation of the colonial prism through which photography exists. We are inviting conversation among all communities impacted by the colonial gaze. The speakers invited to Moving the Landscape to Find Ground will also provide studio visits to Concordia University graduate students. If you wish to have one of our speakers visit your studio, please sign up here.
Rehab Nazzal is a Palestinian-born multidisciplinary artist based in Toronto and Montreal. Her work deals with the effects of settler-colonial violence on the bodies and minds of colonized peoples, on the land and on other non-human life. Nazzal’s video, photography and sound works have been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across Canada and internationally. She was an assistant professor at Dar Al-Kalima University in Bethlehem and has taught at Simon Fraser University, Western University and Ottawa School of Art. She is the recipient of several awards, including the Social Justice Award from Ryerson University and the Edmund and Isobel Ryan Visual Arts Award in Photography from the University of Ottawa.
