I will meet you again | A workshop with artist Graciela Magnoni
Join us for a workshop by 1x1 Gallery with artist Graceiela Magonini - 5 April, 2024.
About this Event

Alserkal Arts Foundation is pleased to host 1x1 Gallery and artist Graciela Magnoni, whose upcoming workshop expands upon her latest project ‘Watan’ at 1x1 Art Gallery - a project capturing the essence of Punjab on both sides of the India-Pakistan border.

What began on a poignant note during Graciela’s visit to India to immerse the ashes of her parents-in-law, the conversation addresses a void wherein the discussions around the 1947 partition remain hidden, continuing to exist as a chapter without closure.

This workshop not only invites UAE’s South Asian community to share their partition narratives, but also encourages people across nationalities to bring their unique perspectives, echoing Graciela's own experiences traversing both sides of Punjab via train.

As we come together to share these untold stories, don't miss the opportunity to be a part of a meaningful discourse on memory, loss, and redemption.
Meeting point: Warehouse 51, Common Room, Alserkal Arts Foundation at 8PM

Graciela Magnoni a French-Uruguayan photographer began her journey of documenting images during her formative years in Brazil in a local press in 1980s. Her career took root as she documented the return of Latin American democracies following the completion of an MA in Journalism from the University of Minnesota. Widely commissioned for various projects across the Global South, Magnoni has travelled extensively over the last five years capturing images of streets, cultures, local communities, and everyday life. In her own words she describes photography as her passion and as something that provides structure to her life.
