RIHAB ESSAYH : AS WITH ALL WARRIORS OF LOVE
Information on the activity
From November 11 to December 17, 2022.
McBride Contemporain is delighted to announce "As With All Warriors of Love," a solo exhibition by multidisciplinary artist Rihab Essayh. This presentation brings together works originally created for her master's exhibition presented at the Art Gallery of Guelph, as well as a series of new drawings.
This body of artwork proposes not only her project, but the “art project” as such, as a form of loving communal support and intensive avenue of both expressing and receiving support and empathy. The actual and the mythic come together in her vision of an oasis, a place where we gather and shelter from the outside, but also come to grow, evolve and find ourselves. It is populated by her own friends, and suffused with a spirit she wants her audience to participate in as well as absorb that of a deeply caring and supportive community of friendships.
