Sama Alshaibi on Dont-Smile
Throughout January 2017, Sama Alshaibi is featured in the online exhibition Subversion. Appearing on www.dont-smile.com, this month-long, collective exhibition highlights self-portraits by female photographers. Alshaibi is represented with a selection of works from her Silsila project, a multimedia body of work that debuted at the Venice Biennale in 2013, and has since toured internationally, most recently at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art in Arizona.
Subversion lunched on 3 January as part of Don’t Smile’s ongoing efforts to provide a platform for established and emerging women artists from diverse backgrounds.
