Emily Jacir

ARTIST

Explore The Work

"The moment you start looking for something specific then you already know what you are going to find and are no longer open to possibility and change"

Using film, photography, social interventions, installation, performance, writing, sound, extensive research, and a variety of narrative structures, Jacirís conceptual and multi-disciplinary work is both aesthetically and politically acute. A Palestinian artist who moves between Ramallah and New York and lives around the Mediterranean, she continues to question constructions of knowledge, history and resistance.
