Artist Talk with Joyce Dallal and Maymanah Farhat

The themes that surface in Joyce Dallal’s artwork are those of collective and personal history, community, memory and the evolution of contemporary cultural identity. A first-generation Iraqi-Jewish American born in Indiana to parents from Baghdad, both her personal work and public art are informed by the experience of
navigating and integrating these various identities.

Maymanah Farhat is a writer and curator. Her current curatorial projects are Poetry Is Not a Luxury and "History Is Not Here: Art and the Arab Imaginary," Minnesota Museum of American Art, St. Paul (Fall 2019).

This artist talk is a part of Poetry is Not a Luxury, a series titled after Audre Lorde’s 1977 essay on the intersections of creativity and activism that were not only essential to her own work but to a diverse group of feminist thinkers at the time. The series features artists who approach book arts in a similar way.
