Mapping Sitting: On Portraiture and Photography

Venturing into uncharted territory, Mapping Sitting explores 20th-century Arab portrait photography. Conceived by two contemporary artists, Walid Raad and Akram Zaatari, the mixed-media exhibition comprises foursections investigating how the portrait functioned in the Arab world not only to picture individuals and groups, but also as commodity, luxury item, and adornment.

Author Co-edited by Karl Bassil, Zeina Maasri, and Akram Zaatari in collaboration with Walid Raad
