Decolonizing Art Narratives
Lamia Joreige in conversation with Dr. Yasmine Khayyat
Decolonizing Art Narratives: Arab Women Artists Today, a lecture organized by Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar, will feature visual artist and filmmaker Lamia Joreige along with Dr. Yasmine Khayyat.
Wednesday February 24th | 8p.m. (Doha)
The series presents a dynamic group of Arab female artists and practitioners across disciplines and regions in the Middle East exploring issues of gender, politics, colonialism, culture and identity. This lecture series asks: How might we revisit and rethink existing narratives in contemporary art? The lectures as a whole reinforce the focus theme—the pursuit of decolonized art narratives.
