Mohamed Almusibli (YE/CH)
Cherish is a project space in Geneva founded and run by Mohamed Almusibli, James Bantone, Thomas Liu Le Lann and Ser Serpas from their shared living space. The space occupies a rather dormant, figuratively homely and quaint domicile both in its architecture and planning as a family home. Cherish subverts this common narrative by hosting and showcasing work that has been tokenized and is accustomed to functioning as an afterthought of institutional structures in Switzerland and abroad. It aims to provide an alternative space of production to the artists invited and hosted.
Mohamed Almusibli is an artist and independent curator based in Geneva. He is the co-founder of Cherish and has curated exhibitions and performances at Auto Italia, London; Karma International, Zurich; Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva among others. He is currently a curator in residence at the Centre d’Art Contemporain in Geneva where he shows a monthly selection of video art in his Almusibli Panorama program which will conclude with the first Swiss Moving Image Award.
