Image and Text: Theory and Practice

Gui Mohallem (artist based in São Paulo, Brazil)

Thursday 26 April 2018, 3.00 PM Verdon-Smith Room



Gui Mohallem is a Brazilian artist who explores questions of identity, migration and belonging across a number of media, from photography to installation. His artist’s book Tcharafna, part of ongoing multi-media project, is an account of his father’s migration from Lebanon to Brazil through a mediation on his family’s photographic archives. In his hands, the artist’s book becomes a tool for interrogating the role of images in the construction of collective diasporic memory and transnational identity.

All welcome.
