The Mahindra Center's Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Series on Migration and the Humanities presents

A Conversation about Art, Migration, and Citizenship


Bouchra Khalili
David and Roberta Logie Fellow, Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University

Bouchra Khalili often draws on the tropes of documentary cinema to redirect the conventions by which citizens and subjects are asked to present themselves to the state. Her work has been exhibited internationally, most recently at documenta 14. She has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, and MCBA in Barcelona. Her work has also been shown at the New Museum and the 55th Venice Biennale.
