In an exhibition that resembles a shop, Hiba Abdallah explores the question: how do we define a city? An artist who frequently works in conceptual and text-based practices, in Souvenir Shop Abdallah investigates the connections between ethnic diversity and commercial enterprise in the public consciousness of Mississauga.

The AGM is committed to recognizing and supporting the work of emerging artists from the Mississauga and 905 region, and is proud to work with regional artist-run centres to share opportunities and resources with talented next generation artists and cultural producers.
