Views on the 4th: Maha Maamoun
March 4, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
In partnership with Critical Distance, we are pleased to bring Cairo-based artist Maha Maamoun to Toronto for an artist talk as part of SAVAC’s Views on the 4th. Maha will present a broad view of her work, primarily based in video and photography, and unpack her interest in the circulation and function of images in vernacular culture, reframing these as tools for critical insights and analysis.
Maha Maamoun has exhibited her work internationally in biennials and exhibitions at such venues as the Sharjah Art Foundation, New Museum, Berlinale 64, Tate Modern, 9th Gwangju Biennale, Witte de With, MoMA NY, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Haus der Kunst. She is a co-founder of the independent publishing platform Kayfa-ta and a founding board member of the Contemporary Image Collective (CiC), an independent non-profit space for art and culture in Cairo.
Views on the 4th is a speaker series that hosts racialized artists, curators and arts administrators from Toronto who share their views on themes relevant to their work. Elucidating the politics behind art production, these talks highlight SAVAC’s commitment to critically examine contemporary issues and promote research-based artistic practices in the arts. The talks feature community members from different stages in their career – from emerging artists to established curators.
