Emily Jacir: Europa coincides with the artist's first major institutional survey exhibition in the UK and Ireland.
The focus of the exhibition and catalogue is Jacir's manifold practice in Europe, in particular Italy and the Mediterranean. As poetic as it is political and biographical, her work investigates various histories of colonization, exchange, transformation, resistance, movement and migration. Jacir has built a complex and compelling oeuvre through a diverse range of media and methodoligies that include unearthing historical material, performative gestures, and in depth research.
This fully illustrated catalogue features original essays by Jean Fisher, Lorenzo Fusi, Omar Kholeif, Nikos Papastergiadis and Graziella Parati, as well as an excerpt from Franco Cassano chosen by the artist.
