Museum for Art In Wood Presents Seeing Through Space Artist Talk With Nadia Kaabi-Linke
Join the Museum for Art in Wood for an engaging artist talk with artist Nadia Kaabi-Linke, whose work is included in the current exhibition The Mashrabiya Project – Seeing Through Space. Kaabi-Linke is the fourth featured artist to speak in the exhibition’s ongoing lecture series. In this virtual talk, Kaabi-Linke will share her artistic journey and her connection to mashrabiya in the context of architecture, art, craft, and community. Nadia Kaabi-Linke was born Tunis, Tunisia, and raised in Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates. She graduated from the University of Fine Arts, Tunis, in 1999, and earned a Ph.D. at Université Paris-Sorbonne, in 2008. Growing up between Tunis, Kyiv, and Dubai, and now residing in Berlin, Kaabi-Linke has a personal history of migration across cultures and borders that has greatly influenced her work. Her works give physical presence to that which tends to remain invisible, be it people, structures, or the geopolitical forces that shape them.
