Dana Qaddah

Dana Qaddah (b. Beirut, Lebanon) is an interdisciplinary artist and independent curator currently based on unceded Musqueam, Tsleil-Waututh and Squamish territory. Qaddah’s practice uses archives of personal and itinerant cultural knowledge to traverse themes of Arab futurism and storytelling, while reflecting on the condition of being abstracted from the destruction of one’s own sense of self and place.

The following year, they were invited to participate in Access Gallery’s PLOT space as a writer-in-residence. In 2020, Qaddah curated a program hosted by Western Front as part of Recollective: Vancouver Independent Archives Week. Recent presentations of Qaddah’s work includes the group exhibition The Neighbour’s Plate at Unit 17 (Vancouver) and the solo exhibition of Vessel(s) through which at Libby Leshgold Gallery (Vancouver). Qaddah was most recently one of the artists-in-residence at the Media Arts Committee’s sound art program, and is working towards a solo exhibition at Unit 17 in 2022.
