Shadi Habib Allah will be taking part in a project composed of an exhibition, a series of screenings and performances, and a publication, alongside Marwa Arsanios, Alejandro Cesarco, Michelle Dizon, Sharon Hayes, Jessika Khazrik, Rosalind Nashashibi, Nashashibi/Skaer, Georgia Sagri; screenings looped weekly include Chto Delat, Phil Collins, Jibade Khalil-Huffman, Maha Maamoun, Raqs Media Collective, Jalal Toufic; presentations/performances include Jessika Khazrik, Gelare Khoshgozaran, Dylan Mira, and Joanne Nucho.
The project considers gestures of protest, unrest, and incendiary exchange as the starting point to a conversation. Multimedia works and formats on view represent images of conflict and strife that are oftentimes stripped of their original or intended context.
