Jude Abu Zaineh
| BioArtist | Palestinian-Canadian Interdisciplinary Artist
Jude Abu Zaineh is a Palestinian-Canadian interdisciplinary artist and cultural worker. Her practice relies on the use of art, food, and technology to investigate meanings of culture, displacement, diaspora, and belonging. She examines ideals of home and community while working to develop aesthetics rooted in her childhood and upbringing in the Middle East. Abu Zaineh is the recipient of the 2020 William and Meredith Saunderson Prizes for Emerging Artists, and was one of the first selected artists to participate in a collaborative residency with the Ontario Science Centre and MOCA Toronto (Canada). She has presented her work nationally and internationally including Cultivamos Cultura, São Luis, Portugal; Museu de Arte, Arquitetura e Tecnologia, Lisbon, Portugal; Centro de Cultura Digital, Mexico City, Mexico; SVA, NYC, USA; Forest City Gallery; London, Canada. Abu Zaineh received an MFA from the University of Windsor (Canada) and is currently pursuing her PhD in Electronic Arts at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (NY, USA) as a SSHRC Doctoral Fellow. She maintains an active studio practice between upstate NY, USA and Windsor-Essex, Canada.
During the INCUBATOR Alumni Artist in Residence, Jude will produce a series of Petri dishes as part of a larger vinyl installation for an upcoming solo exhibition at the Art Gallery of Windsor: In the Presence of Absence, curated by Noor Alé, opening June 10, 2022. Jude will lead a public workshop as an extension of community-engaged practices in collaboration with INCUBATOR Lab x AGW.
