Generation Exhibition Opens

May 26
Jepson Center, 207 W York St
Savannah, 31401 United States
+ Google Map

Generation is an exhibition that brings together two generations of Iraqi-Canadian women artists—mother Sawsan AlSaraf and her daughters Tamara and Sundus Abdul Hadi—offering a dialogue between their artworks as to how three members of the same family respond artistically to complex themes of representation, identity, and displacement in a contemporary global world. Each artist works from a very idiosyncratic point of view and preferred artistic media, yet together they cross-pollinate, collaborate, and synthesize ideas as common belief systems experienced in their lifetimes.

Her + Him Film Begins

Savannah, 31401 United States

Akram Zaatari (Lebanese, b. 1966) is a filmmaker, photographer, archival artist, and curator who lives and works in Beirut, Lebanon. Author of more than 40 videos and video installations, Zaatari explores issues pertinent to post-war Lebanon and the way television mediates territorial conflicts and wars, and is particularly interested in the logic of religious and national resistance movements in the Middle East. Zaatari is co-founder of the Arab Image Foundation (Beirut, founded 1997), and his work is largely based on collecting, studying, and archiving the photographic history of the Arab world. Her + Him tells the story of Egyptian studio photographer Van Leo and a woman known only as “Nadia,” who entered Studio Van Leo in 1957 and asked to be photographed in the nude. The film explores the entire series of images, which documents “Nadia” undressing in 12 poses, and also includes an in-depth interview with Van Leo about conventions related to his work.
