LAST CHANCE Sama Alshaibi: Staging the Imagined

13 November

Free

Solo exhibition of Sama Alshaibi’s latest body of work is an implicit critique of the social exploitation generated over a century of images of Middle Eastern women. Through various projects, Alshaibi reframes historical photographs and moving images that according to Grace Aneiza Ali “reference a grave historic malpractice the role of photography, both colonial and contemporary, in reducing the body, the life, the desires, the experiences, the hopes and dreams, indeed the very existence, of the Middle Eastern woman to a dangerous single story one rooted in the primitive and in fear, fantasy, inferiority, and objectification”.
