Power Talks: Fawz Kabra: Rock The Casbah says
Since 2006, Power Talks has partnered with Art Toronto to present influential art-world figures who discuss their projects, preoccupations and ideas in the context of the city’s largest art fair. Participants range from leading collectors, advisors and dealers to internationally renowned museum directors, curators, critics, scholars, and artists.

Fawz Kabra is a curator and writer based in New York. In this talk, Fawz will address the conditions of contemporary art production in the Middle East and its diasporas. With shared histories of colonialism, the rise and fall of Pan-Arab solidarity and efforts of decolonization and social justice; to recent invasions, civil wars, and neoliberal capitalism running alongside proliferating city expansions, erasures, and revitalizations; what does the artist tell us about the limits of representation, the production of histories, and the transformation of landscapes?

FREE with daily Art Toronto admission
$45 multi-day fair pass (allows access to all three Power Talks and all four days of the fair)
