Noah Simblist Walking the Length of a Knife's Edge: Mona Hatoum's Contradictions

Mona Hatoum’s work operates in the borderlands between aesthetic categories, identities, and nation states. This lecture will analyze a series of her works to unpack the relationship between forms of social, material, and imagistic displacement. Noah Simblist is Chair of Painting and Printmaking and Associate Professor of Art at Virginia Commonwealth University. He works as a curator, writer, and artist and has contributed to Art Journal, Modern Painters, Art in America, Art Papers, Terremoto, Art Lies, Art Pulse, Art21, and other publications.
