School of Art Speaker Series - Sama Alshaibi

Working between photography, video, and installation, Sama Alshaibi (b. 1973, Iraq) links themes of dispossession, mobility, margins, refuge, entropy, and future/historic imaginings. Alshaibi’s performances depict her body as a powerful feminized site resisting the pretext for social subjection in the aftermath of war and migration.
In 2021, Alshaibi was named a Guggenheim Fellow in Photography, and a recipient of the Phoenix Art Museum’s 2021 Arlene and Morton Scult Artist Award. She was also a recipient of a 2019 Artpace San Antonio residency and the 2018 Arab Fund for Arts and Culture Visual Arts Grant. Alshaibi’s exhibitions include the 55th Venice Biennale; State of the Art 2020 (Crystal Bridges Museum of Art); 2019 Cairo International Biennale; 2017 Honolulu Biennal; American University Museum, Washington D.C.; SMoCA; MARTa Herford Museum (Germany); Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art (NYC); Institut Du Monde Arabe (Paris); and Ayyam Gallery (UK/UAE). Her monograph, Sama Alshaibi: Sana Rushes In (New York: Aperture, 2015), features her Silsila Series. Alshaibi is a Professor of Photography, Video and Imaging at the University of Arizona in Tucson.
