Emily Jacir

As poetic as it is political and biographical, Jacir’s work investigates histories of colonization, exchange, translation, transformation, resistance, and movement. Jacir has built a complex and compelling oeuvre through a diverse range of media and methodologies that include unearthing historical material, performative gestures and in-depth research. She has been actively involved in education in Palestine since 1999 and deeply invested in creating alternative spaces of knowledge production. She is the Founding Director of Dar Yusuf Nasri Jacir for Art and Research and is currently curating the Young Artist of the Year Award 2018 at the A. M. Qattan Foundation.
