The Museum for Art in Wood is proud to present a series of free virtual lectures with artists featured in the upcoming exhibition Seeing through Space, opening March 3, 2023, and running through July 23, 2023. This series is meant to connect the public with the artists and engage in thoughtful discussions about mashrabiya in the context of architecture, art, craft, and community. Our fourth lecture will feature artist Nadia Kaabi-Linke.

Nadia Kaabi-Linke was born Tunis, Tunisia, in 1978, and raised in Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates. She graduated from the University of Fine Arts, Tunis, in 1999, and earned a Ph.D. at Université Paris-Sorbonne, in 2008. Growing up between Tunis, Kyiv, and Dubai, and now residing in Berlin, Kaabi-Linke has a personal history of migration across cultures and borders that has greatly influenced her work. Her works give physical presence to that which tends to remain invisible, be it people, structures, or the geopolitical forces that shape them.
This event is free to the public. The Museum for Art in Wood interprets, nurtures, and champions creative engagement and expansion of art, craft, and design in wood to enhance the public’s understanding and appreciation of it. A suggested donation of $5 per person enables us to provide programs and exhibitions throughout the year.
