Lamia Joreige, a visual artist and filmmaker based in Beirut whose projects explore the tension between the temptation and the impossibility of representing the Lebanese Wars and their aftermath within the city of Beirut, will be giving the latest in the series of online lectures titled, “Decolonizing Art Narratives: Arab Women Artists Today.”
It will take place on Wednesday, February 24, at 8pm Doha time.
Lamia’s work attempts to capture and translate time, its effects, and its traces through moving and still images and multimedia installations.
The talk will be moderated by Yasmine Khayyat, Assistant Professor, Arabic Language and Literature, at Rutgers University.

The online lecture series will ask how Arab women artists can revisit and rethink existing narratives in contemporary art.
