The Question of Funding Collective, a collective of artists and cultural workers, spoke to Elitqa Collective in Gaza about how amidst destruction and desperation, canvases and frames from the gallery were burned for warmth. QOF asks “What is art in the time of genocide?”

Latitude 53 responds to this call by showcasing the work of local Palestinian artists, and artists working in solidarity, speaking out on their experiences with displacement. From the ongoing genocide in Palestine to the unhoused encampment sweeps locally, we turn to art to resist erasure, and support our communities.

The title pays tribute to Palestinian poet Refaat Alareer’s last poem, If I must die.
