Art and Cultural Identity Speaker Series
In association with Carol Solomon’s Art and Cultural Identity course, Haverford College Center for Peace & Global Citizenship and The Hurford Humanities Center are sponsoring a series of public lectures by visiting artists. Art and Cultural Identity is an interdisciplinary examination of the issues, with texts by Bhabba, Fanon, Hail, Said, and others. Concepts discussed in the course include exile, displacement, diaspora, alienation, transnationalism, hybridity, and cosmopolitanism. Topics of discussions include cultural imperialism, orientalism, and cultural property debates.
Video and installation artist Zoulikha Bouabdellah was born in Russia in 1977 to Algerian parents. Raised in Algiers, she moved to Paris in 1994 where she was awarded degrees from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts de Cergy-Paris in 2000 and 2002. Bouabdellah has had solo shows in Europe, Africa, and North America and her work has been featured in several major international exhibitions including, in 2007, the 52nd Venice Biennale (African Pavilion). Her art focuses on issues of national and transnational identity, gender, and religion.
