Reclaiming Landscapes – Workshop led by AIR Noel Maghathe at Bridgehampton Museum
June 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
A partnership with The Bridgehampton Museum, “UPON THIS GROUND” will host our next program on June 11th at 2 pm at The Bridgehampton Museum with a workshop led by Queer Mixed Palestinian American Artist and Curator Noel Maghathe (they/them).
Upon This Ground
To create an inclusive, collaborative initiative between Ma’s House & BIPOC Art Studio and the Bridgehampton Museum that will encourage a greater understanding and celebration of the presentation and interpretation of individual and collective history through artist-led discussions, workshops, and demonstrations with current artists-in-residence.
Join artist Noel Maghathe for a 1-hour beeswax sculpture workshop located at The Bridgehampton Museum. Noel will guide you in creating your own landscape through mini candles upon a wax block from a mold you will shape. Using beeswax, hemp wicks, and herbs to create your unique piece.
During this workshop, we will discuss memories, stories, and visions of reclaiming lands taken. We will spend time sharing these stories and thoughts while creating this work together. We will also discuss how art can be a way to release energy and negative thoughts and share tools about mindfulness through art making.
Noel Maghathe is a queer, mixed Palestinian-American performance artist and curator. They create and perform with queer functional tools to navigate the world, and their practice centers on their Palestinian heritage. Through their work, Maghathe seeks to educate audiences about the pain of occupation and their yearning for their country while also delving into the deeper dimensions of personal identity beyond surface-level labels. Maghathe values connecting with other Palestinian and Arab artists in our homelands and in the diaspora.
Maghathe holds a BFA from the Art Academy of Cincinnati, where they were awarded the Stephen H. Wilder Traveling Scholarship in 2017. In 2022, they exhibited their work at the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center, Pancake House Gallery, Maelstrom Collaborative Arts, and more. Maghathe was also selected as Curator-in-Residence at Wave Pool, where they curated Amid, an international Palestinian art exhibition. Currently based in Cincinnati, Ohio, Maghathe continues to create work in their studio.
