Decolonizing Art Narratives: Alia Ali in conversation with Holiday Powers
The first of a one academic year lecture-series, "Decolonizing Art Narratives; Arab Women Artists Today" presents a dynamic group of Arab female artists and practitioners across disciplines and regions in the Middle East exploring issues of gender, politics, colonialism, culture and identity. This lecture series asks: How might we revisit and rethink existing narratives in contemporary art? The lectures as a whole reinforce the focus theme—the pursuit of decolonized art narratives.

Join us for the sixth and final Spring-term artist lecture of the series by Alia Ali, with a discussion & Q&A moderated by Holiday Powers on April 7 at 8pm (Doha time).

Working between photography, video, and installation, Alia Ali's work addresses the politicization of the body, histories of
colonization, imperialism, sexism, and racism through projects that take pattern and textile as their primary motif. In
her immersive installations she utilizes light, pattern, and textile to move past language and offer an expansive,
experiential understanding of self, culture, and nation. In her experimental video work and sound installations, she aims to
reactivate historical and political archives of Yemen and Bosnia, using deep research to highlight untold narratives.

Attendance is free and open to the public.
