Nazik Dakkach responds to مُمْتلَكاتMumtalakat, Reading Event by Emma Haraké, Hoda Adra, Farah Atoui, Rabih Chami, Muzna Dureid, Johnny El-Hage, and Ranya Essmat Saad – August 7, 2019
Reprise is a bimonthly dispatch that reactivates the Leonard & Bina Ellen Art Gallery’s public programming archives through a series of responses to selected events from the past decade (2010-2019). Each iteration invites a guest proximate to a past event—either directly involved in its realization, witness to it, or in dialogue with it at the time—to reflect on the stakes in reviewing and renewing the ideas, positions and conversations from the standpoint of today.
Circulated from May through August, Reprise promotes a dialogue between the past and the present by linking audio and video documentation of a lecture, performance, or discussion with critical writing and retrospective study.
We also invite you to read Rodney Saint-Éloi’s now indispensable Apocalyptic Manifesto.
Discover our collection-based web projects.
Discover or rediscover the 13 texts written for the Gallery by Montreal poet and publisher Rodney Saint-Éloi. An apocalyptic manifesto founded in the experience of those suffering under what has been called the apocalypse.

EXPLORE OUR WEB PROJECTS
Explore in our web projects different ways to examine critically an aspect of our collection or the practices that have shaped it.
Collecting: The Inflections of a Practice examines historically the practices of acquisition, conservation, and display of the collection.
Anne Savage: A Latent Collection delves into a rarely exhibited body of works in the collection from a feminist and decolonial perspective.
Establishing a Database Connection. The inaugural project from our Expanding Exhibition Residency investigates how the digital file database of the collection can be activated beyond the pure intention of data preservation and storage.
