Farah Al Qasimi works in photography, video, and performance, exploring the intersections of gender, identity, nationality, and class through a postcolonial lens. Occupying a space of celebration and criticism, joy and sadness, her photographs question aesthetics and expose its failure in our everyday lives. For her exhibition at CAM, Al Qasimi will present a site-specific installation for the 60-foot-long Project Wall, where she will present images that provoke empathy, connection, and subjectivity.
