- What:Evening events
- Where:Seminar Room One, Sackler Centre
EVENING EVENT: Rifat Chadirji, one of the most prominent Iraqi architects of the 20th century, and UK-based Iraqi artist Jananne Al-Ani will be in conversation with Zeina Arida, director of the Beirut-based Arab Image Foundation (AIF) where Chadirji’s photographic collection is housed.
Chadirji’s photographic practice acts as an invitation to reflect on the dialectic of architecture and photography. The AIF holds over 600,000 images from across the Middle East region and encourages their further study, acting as an important resource for contemporary creation for artists such as Al-Ani.
