Rana Hamadeh is speaking about her practice and recent project, The Sleepwalkers, on Thursday 25 February, at 6pm. This talk will feature a rare screening of the independent film, Sun Ra: Space Is The Place, which has a connection to Hamadeh’s ongoing body of work.
Hamadeh is a performance and visual artist from Lebanon based in the Netherlands. Interested in a curatorial approach within her artistic practice, she works on long-term discursive research projects that operate as umbrellas to growing series of sound and text-based performances, cartographic works, stage sets, and writing projects. Her work stems from an extended investigation into specific concepts and terms, treating the field of theory as fiction. Selected exhibitions include Nottingham Contemporary, Western Front (Vancouver), TPW (Toronto), Moscow Bienniale, 2015; The New Museum, CCA Wattis Institute, EVA International, KIOSK, Liverpool Biennial, 2014; Lisson Gallery, Beirut (Cairo), Witte de With, 2013; Van Abbemuseum, 2011; and Beirut Art Center, 2010.
