In Conversation with Jala Wahid

An evening of conversation and music around Jala Wahid’s Conflagration exhibition.

Jala Wahid will be in conversation with writer and historian Dr Edwin Coomasaru to discuss her new body of work, which approaches oil as the symbolic material through which nationalism, statelessness, colonialism and Kurdish identity are explored.  


Their conversation will be followed by a music performance by Kurdish singer Amal Saeed Kurda, who collaborated with Wahid on her sound work titled Naphtha Maqam (2022), included in the exhibition. 


Saturday 10 February, 5pm onwards.
