ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE THROUGH THE ARTS
SILSILA by SAMA ALSHAIBI
OCT 5 - DEC 22
Arabic for ‘chain’ or ‘link’— Silsila is a multi-media project depicting Alshaibi’s seven-year cyclic journey through the significant deserts and endangered water sources of the Middle East and North African region. Through this body of work, the artist examines connections between different cultures that are under threat of displacement, recognizing shared global issues that need to be addressed.
Through exposing her own subjectivity, both in terms of her multiple points-of-view as an Iraqi-Palestinian woman practicing in the United States but also in her enactments as the subject in her own image-based work, Sama Alshaibi aims to reorient her audiences’ gaze.
Opening Reception: Thursday, OCTOBER 5th, 4:30 - 7:30 p.m. Visual Arts Building | 551 W Pitkin, CSU CAMPUS, Fort Collins.
