Tracing Mississauga

//Tracing Mississauga
Loading Programs

Throughout 2019, artist Hiba Abdallah will lead a series of collaborative workshops, discussions, projects and interventions that trace our collective food memory. We will consider the commemoration of place through walking, discussing and eating together. One of the aims of the project will be to bring an acute awareness to the multiple communities who are present in Mississauga, and the histories of immigration and colonialism that have shaped the city through food.

This mapping session will consider how/when/where/what food is located in Mississauga. Collectively we will trace and plot the different cuisines, shops and homes that compose the food palette of the city.

Presented in the context of Amy Malbeuf’s exhibition, Tensions, at the Small Arms Inspection Building, January 5 to February 9, 2019.
