Anderman Photography Lecture: Lalla Essaydi

Drawing from her perspective and experience growing up in Morocco and now living in the United States, Lalla Essaydi creates photographs of women that express the richness and complexity of identity.

Essaydi utilizes materials such as henna, calligraphy, textiles, bullets, and architectural spaces to adorn/veil the bodies as well as create the environment that surrounds the women in these performative photographs. Her work disrupts traditional gender roles of Islamic culture and challenges cultural misconceptions.

"In my art, I wish to present myself through multiple lenses—as artist, as Moroccan, as traditionalist, as Liberal, as Muslim," Lalla Essaydi explains. "In short, I invite viewers to resist stereotypes."

Doors open at 6:30 pm.

Tickets are free for Museum Friends, $15 for DAM members, $20 for nonmembers, $5 for students.
