Sama Alshaibi: Generation After Generation

  • through May 14, 2023
  • Phoenix Art Museum
Sama Alshaibi: Generation After Generation is a solo exhibition shaped by photography’s historic and outsized role in generating the gendered and flattened representations of Middle Eastern and North African people and their spaces. Alshaibi reframes this legacy by presenting the Arab female figure as a complex site that embodies the physical and psychic realms of the individual and community when resources, land, mobility and political agency are compromised, using photographic imagery, video and installation. She activates her own body as a mobile medium in consideration of those who are violated and uprooted into physical and psychological exile or positioned as unwanted, alien, silenced and disappeared.
