Community is… (Downsview)
Located at four hubs for ArtworksTO, Community is… is a site-specific text-based installation by artist Hiba Abdallah. The project aims to highlight each neighbourhood’s unique disposition through large scale text that declare and celebrate the meaning of community.
Hiba Abdallah is an artist and educator who frequently works with others. Her practice explores the structural legacies and futures of cities by researching the intersections of collaboration and disagreement as productive frameworks for re-imagining public agency. She received her BFA from the University of Windsor in 2012 and her MFA from the University of Guelph in 2017. She currently lives and works as an uninvited guest on the traditional land of the Anishinaabe, the Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississauga’s of the Credit River.
