Nada Shabout, Saleem Al-Bahloly, Venetia Porter, and Ruba Katrib join Hanaa Malallah to celebrate the release of her new book.

About this Event

Join artist Hanaa Malallah, art historians Nada Shabout (University of North Texas) and Saleem Al-Bahloly, and curator Venetia Porter (British Museum) in a conversation moderated by Ruba Katrib (MoMA PS1), to celebrate the release of Malallah’s new book, ‘This Green is Not Green: Letters Between Shakir Hassan Al Sa’id and Hanaa Malallah’ (Struktur Editions, 2021).

 

Pre-order ‘This Green is Not Green: Letters Between Shakir Hassan Al Sa’id and Hanaa Malallah’ for $24- from Artbook @ MoMA PS1 Bookstore here: https://artbookstores.com/This-Green-is-Not-Green-Thumbnail

 

Comprised of twelve letters written by Al Sa’id in 1996 and eleven responses by Malallah from the decades after his death, the book finds the two artists—the avant-garde and the garde of Middle Eastern modernism—in otherworldly correspondence. Their intimate, expansive dialogue ranges from mystical theology to Arab existentialism to ancient Mesopotamia and the modern Middle East. The letters are also profoundly personal, detailing their childhoods, their art practices and the crises and struggles that made them the artists they became.
