Inhabiting Images


Inhabiting Images is a series of gatherings with and around images.

Taking a single image as a site of assembly, each session excavates the sprawling network of meanings, processes and infrastructures that go into the production of and encounter with images in the contemporary moment. 

Led by Sabih Ahmed, the programme invites participants into an open discussion on selected artworks from Ishara Art Foundation’s ongoing exhibition ‘Growing Like A Tree’ curated by Sohrab Hura. The first gathering around Inhabiting Images will be inaugurated in March during Alserkal’s March Art Week, followed by a second and third one in April and May 2021, to be led in future sessions by guest artists and cultural practitioners. 

Inhabiting Images is organised by Ishara Art Foundation in collaboration with GPP. 

Date: Saturday, 3rd April 2021
Time: 3 pm – 4:30 pm GST
Venue: The CONCRETE, Alserkal Avenue
