Looking Back, Looking Beyond: Women Speak on Art, Politics, and Exile— Middle East/USA

In conjunction with the exhibition Everything Matters: Paul Kos, A Retrospective

Featuring internationally celebrated feminist visual artists Shirin Neshat (Iran–USA) and Emily Jacir (Palestine–USA), and NYU cultural critics Ella Shohat (Iraq–Israel–USA) and Shiva Balaghi (Iran–USA), this roundtable discussion will examine how artistic creativity in exile is shaped by the temporal, spatial, socio-political, religious, and cultural contexts in which it is produced. Participants will reflect on the powerful combinations of exile and belonging, gender and politics, and art and displacement. Moderated by Rabab Abdulhadi.
