Thursday, February 3, 2022
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Reception: 5:00 - 6:00 pm
Sama Alshaibi, Guggenheim Fellow and internationally renowned artist, makes art at the intersections of photography, performance, and sculpture. In this lecture, she will discuss her performances that depict her body as a powerful feminized site resisting the pretext for subjection in the aftermath of war and migration. Her talk will touch on the themes that animate her work: dispossession, mobility, margins, refuge, entropy and future/historic imaging.
