SAB Visiting Artist Talk

Fazal Sheikh

Thursday, March 21, 5:30 p.m.
Julis Romo Rabinowitz Building, Room A17

The photographer Fazal Sheikh, Princeton University ’87 and former visiting professor, will deliver the Art Museum Student Advisory Board’s annual artist talk.  

Sheikh has spent his career photographing individuals and communities displaced by conflict and environmental change. Acclaimed for his intimate portraits, Sheikh collaborates closely with his subjects to better understand and share their stories. In this talk, he will discuss his newest body of work, Exposure (2017–22). To make Exposure, set in the American Southwest, Sheikh worked closely with Utah Diné Bikéyah, a Native American grassroots organization, to examine the human and environmental costs of the exploitation of public lands. The expansive landscapes seen in the series pay homage to the spiritual significance of the land, while portraits and collected testimonies reveal the ongoing but often invisible effects of environmental racism, especially on Indigenous inhabitants. 




Gallery Talk

Alia Bensliman

Thursday, March 28, 5:30 p.m.

Join the artist Alia Bensliman as she discusses her artwork on view in the exhibition Reciting Women: Alia Bensliman & Khalilah Sabree at Art@Bainbridge. 

With homemade watercolors, Micron pens, and a passion for color and pattern, Alia Bensliman celebrates Amazigh women, indigenous to North Africa. Embedding vivid portraits within tessellations inspired by Islamic arabesque motifs, she observes traditional Amazigh textiles, jewelry, and tattoo symbols while creating space to reflect on her own life and experience.
