Artist's Talk: Sama Alshaibi

Artist Sama Alshaibi will discuss her work, currently on view at the Johnson in the solo exhibition Silsila.

Alshaibi's Silsila series consists of several photographic series and videos. Named for the Arabic word for “link,” the exhibition is meant to represent the joining of individuals to one another, humans with the natural world, and the self to the divine. Informed by her own biography--from her birth in Basra, Iraq, in 1973 to parents of Palestinian and Iraqi descent to her transition from political refugee to American citizen--Alshaibi’s work provokes contemporary questions about borders, migration, and environmental demise in relation to the human body.
