Thursday\, April 25
Syrian-born artist and publisher Simo ne Fattal presents her film Autoportrait (1971/2012\, 45 mins). Frus trated with her practice as a painter\, Fattal turned to the medium of film making to document her life in Beirut\, through the fragmented lens of memo ry\, dreams and half-remembered conversations.

\n

 

\n

Word s and Places: Etel Adnan is the first large-scale institutional exh ibition of work by the Lebanese writer\, poet\, and painter Etel Adnan\, sp anning six decades of her artistic practice. Born in Beirut in 1925 to a Ch ristian Greek mother and a Muslim Syrian father\, Adnan has spent her life between places—Beirut\, Paris\, and the Bay Area—negotiating their differen t cultures and languages\, as well as her distinctive position among them. This experience of displacement deeply informs her work\, which similarly r anges between mediums and formats. Her work has recently been included in < i>dOCUMENTA (13) (Kassel\, Germany\, 2012) and the Serpentine Galler y Map Marathon (London\, 2010).
