Posted by on February 2, 2009

Video and installation artist Zoulikha Bouabdellah will visit Haverford College Tuesday, February 3, as part of a series of public lectures by artists sponsored by the College’s Center for Peace and Global Citizenship
and John B. Hurford ’60 Humanities Center. Bouabdellah’s lecture will take place at 4:30 p.m. in Chase Auditorium. She will show digital images of her work and video.

Born in Russia in 1977 to Algerian parents and raised in Algiers, Zoulikha Bouabdellah moved to Paris in 1994 where she was awarded degrees from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Arts de Cergy-Paris in 2000
and 2002.  Bouabdellah has had solo shows in Europe, Africa, and North America and her work has been featured in several major international exhibitions including, in 2007, the 52nd Venice Biennale (African Pavilion).  Her art focuses on issues of national and transnational identity, gender, and religion.

The lecture series is presented in conjunction with Visiting Associate Professor Carol Solomon’s “Art and Cultural Identity” course. Concepts discussed in the course include exile, displacement, diaspora, alienation, transnationalism, hybridity, and cosmopolitanism. Topics of discussions include cultural imperialism, orientalism, and cultural property debates.

Zoulikha Bouabdellah’s visit is co-sponsored by The Center for Visual Culture at Bryn Mawr College.

Haverford College is located at 370 Lancaster Avenue, Haverford, PA 19041.
