Part of the Exhibition
“Walking Interventions: Anida Yoeu Ali in Context”
Robert Yerachmiel Sniderman, an artist, poet, and art critic, will situate the affective radicalism of Anida Yoeu Ali's The Red Chador along a spectrum of contemporary works and traditions, such as the 24-day anti-colonial Dandi Satyagraha (Salt March) (1930) and the anti-capitalist dérive (drift) developed by African and European artists of the Lettrist International (1952-57), Palestinian artist Emily Jacir's clandestine video diary, Crossing Surda (a record of going to and from work), documenting her daily commute among hundreds of others through a military checkpoint in occupied Ramallah (2003), and Polish artist Joanna Rajkowska's enactment, Basia, of her late mother's longed for escape from a psychiatric hospital in Poland (2009). Sniderman will argue for Ali's haunting relevance in the everyday power of routine, memory, and perception.
The Perspectives Series brings together scholars from a range of backgrounds and interests to lead informal 45-minute discussions of topics conjured by the art installations.
