Anida Yoeu Ali: Hybrid Skin, Mythical Presence

  • through July 7, 2024
  • Seattle Asian Art Museum
Anida Yoeu Ali: Hybrid Skin, Mythical Presence explores two of Tacoma-based international artist Anida Yoeu Ali iconic performances The Buddhist Bug and The Red Chador. Central to many of her performances is the use of textiles, a practice rooted in her Cham-Muslim refugee migration experience-her family fled Cambodia with only the clothes on their backs. The colorful, transformative garments worn by the artist and others during the performances-which the artist considers "artifacts" rather than artworks when not enacted by her -are on view. Video. photography and other installation art bring viewers into previous performances of the works from site-specific locations around the world.
