Reading Group: ArtEd

Jameel Library Reading Groups kick off this year with ArtEd. In this iteration, participants delve into texts and other materials that expand on Art education within both global and regional contexts.

In this session, participants will be reading from Why We Make Art and Why It’s Taught by Richard Hickman. The session is led in English by Printmaking Instructor and artist Salama Nasib. The discussion will be directed as an examination of the text within a local context.The reading groups are free and open to all. Registration is required, as space is limited. Registered participants are expected to commit to the reading material and to attend the session they have registered to maintain a respectful, informed and open discursive environment.

Please register via the RSVP button.

Salama Nasib is an instructor of Visual Arts at Zayed University, UAE. She has acquired an MA in Print from the Royal College of Art in London, UK. Prior to joining Zayed University, Nasib worked as a Studio/ Membership Coordinator at Tashkeel in Dubai, where she managed several studios, organizing artistic and collaborative workshops, and co-curating exhibitions. Salama’s work in printmaking and teaching serves work hand in hand to further efforts in establishing diverse and discursive printmaking practices and communities in the UAE.

As a printmaker, Salama’s practice is influenced by examining and meditating upon the difficulties of preserving, remembering and confronting memories at the personal level.
