Artist talk: Hiba Ali (Option + Shift)
November 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Presented in partnership with LEFT Contemporary

Artcite Inc. is excited to engage Hiba Ali through Option+Shift, a series of online talks with artists and curators whose practices represent some of the diverse range of digital media perspectives being explored today. Working in animation, video, GIFs and other unexpected or unconventional use of media, these speakers help us think expansively and imagine different possibilities within our increasingly digital, COVID reality.

Hiba Ali is a digital artist, educator, scholar, DJ, experimental music producer and curator based across Chicago, IL, Austin, TX, and Toronto, ON. Their performances and videos concern surveillance, womxn/ womyn of colour, and labour. She studies the geographies of Afro-descent and Indo-Arab communities across the Indian Ocean through music, cloth and ritual. They conduct reading groups addressing digital media and workshops with open-source technology. She is a PhD candidate in Cultural Studies at Queens University, Kingston, Canada. They are an Assistant Professor of Art, New Media Artist/Feminist Art Discourse, College of Design, Art & Technology, University of Oregon, Eugene, OR. She has presented their work in Chicago, Stockholm, Toronto, New York, Istanbul, São Paulo, Detroit, Dubai, Austin, Vancouver, and Portland. They have written for C Magazine, THE SEEN Magazine, Newcity Chicago, Art Dubai, The State, VAM Magazine, ZORA: Medium, RTV Magazine, and Topical Cream Magazine.
