Movies in the Lot: SADA

June 29 @ 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM

Sada is a Baghdad-based initiative from 2011 to 2015 featuring a group of Contemporary Iraqi artists who were committed to working through the aftermath of American-led wars and occupation. Former participants of Sada will showcase video works reflecting on their practice as Iraqi artists, their work with Sada, and where they are today. The participating artists are Sajjad Abbas, Bassim Al Shaker, Layth Kareem, Ali Eyal, Raed Mutar, Sarah Munaf, and Rijin Sahakian. Artists, Rijin Sahakian and Bassim Al Shaker will lead a pre-screening discussion about their contributions to Sada and their work presented.

This program is in partnership with our Artist Run Chicago Fund.
