Ahlam Shibli: Prix Pictet Conversations on Photography, Whitechapel Gallery, London

About

12 June 2013

Prix Pictet held its fourth Conversation on Photography at the Whitechapel Gallery, London. The participants were the artist Ahlam Shibli and Professor of History of Contemporary Art a L’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, Jean-François Chevrier.

Ahlam Shibli talked about the ways her photographic work addresses the violent denial of home and traces the resistance against its loss, revealing the efforts to create new ways to exist far from home.

The event was supported by Pictet & Cie, and took place at the Zilkha Auditorium, Whitechapel Gallery on 12 June 7-8.30 pm.
