Artist Nayla Dabaji, winner of the 2020 Impressions residency

The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (MMFA), in collaboration with the Conseil des arts de Montréal (CAM), is pleased to announce the winner of the 2020 Impressions residency: artist Nayla Dabaji. This residency invites a visual artist representing Montreal’s cultural diversity to carry out a research and creation project by taking a unique and original look at the Museum’s collections.

From March to April 2020, this Lebanese-born artist will explore the MMFA's collections of contemporary Quebec and Canadian art, Middle Eastern art, Mediterranean archeology, and photography. Nayla Dabaji works mainly with video and installations. In her project Migrer le Musée [The Museum in Migration], she will address the concepts of migration and journeys while focusing on the MMFA’s works that are anonymous or “migrant” either because they deal with the theme of journeys or because they have gone on a journey themselves.
