This talk will showcase the exciting development in international art and contemporary Middle Eastern art - notably by women who challenge the relationship between art and power.

Through the work of artists such as Larissa Sansour and Sama al-Shaibi, who envision alternative and distant futures, the talk will revolve around questions like; is art an archaeology and an architecture of the future?

Why does this art, often preoccupied with the present, appeal to fantasy? In common life, is art being used as a means of refuge for dissensual thought? What do we make of its recurring humour in the face of loss?

Event speaker:

Najat Rahman, Professor of Comparative Literature, University of Montreal
