RIHAB ESSAYH : AS WITH ALL WARRIORS OF LOVE

Information on the activity

November 11, 2022 to December 17, 2022

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.
