Noel Maghathe is a queer, mixed Palestinian-American performance installation artist. Maghathe creates and performs with queer functional tools to navigate the world. Their practice focuses on their Palestinian heritage and the occupation of Palestine, their love and pride for their country, and sharing the pain of occupation and their longing for their country to educate their audience. Connecting with other Palestinian artists in the diaspora is vital to the work Maghathe creates.
Maghathe holds a BFA from the Art Academy of Cincinnati in 2017, where they were awarded the Stephen H. Wilder Traveling Scholarship. In 2022 Maghathe exhibited at the Cincinnati Contemporary Arts Center, Pancake House Gallery, Maelstrom Collaborative Arts, and more. They are currently creating work in their studio based in Cincinnati, Ohio.
