Event description

Description

Solveig Øvstebø, Executive Director and Chief Curator of the Renaissance Society, introduces the work of artist Shadi Habib Allah and his exhibition, Put to Rights.

Palestinian artist Habib Allah works across film, drawing, sculpture, and installation, often drawing on a process of deep research and on-the-ground physical engagement in specific locales. Richly varied in form and focus, his recent projects run the gamut from traveling along illicit trade routes with Bedouin smugglers to documenting labor and banter between mechanics in a Miami body shop. In works like these, he homes in on economies of people, objects, and images, tracing various ways of navigating through these networks or investigating their structures.

Read more about the exhibition.

This event preceeds a reading of Caryl Churchill's play Far Away, in the gallery, which is also presented in conjunction with Habib Allah's exhibition.
