Artist talk with Alia Youssef
Wednesday, March 14
6:00 PM

Presented in partnership with Gallery 44, Alia Youssef will present her talk «Can I have a say in this narrative»

Youssef will discuss the representation of Muslim women from pre-9/11 to present in western media. Specifically, the role of Muslim women in that narrative, and the steps Muslim women are now taking to change that image through artistic collaboration. She will focus on her involvement in the 2017 Muslim Girl x Getty photography campaign and her personal photographic, video, and text series titled The Sisters Project. The series counters negative stereotypes of Muslim women by showcasing the inspiring stories of women across Canada.

This talk is presented in conjunction with Collaboration. A Potential History of Photography, an exhibition and collaborative laboratory currently on view at the Ryerson Image Centre. Collaboration is accompanied by an active and extensive program of special events — all of which are free and open to the public. Events are curated by Ilana Shamoon with Christine McLean.
