Fine Art Photography Monday Talks

GSA Sustainability and SoFA Fine Art Photography present a new artist and curator talk series for Semester 2. The short lunchtime talks will be held Mondays at 13:00 over zoom and are open to all departments.

This series platforms a variety of voices both from Glasgow and abroad and takes the lead from student speaker suggestions. Talks will cover topics ranging from migration, decolonisation and embodied histories of land, healing and resistance, as well as blockchain and the post-digital.

Throughout this multimedia programme a variety of practices will be explored including artist moving image, photography, generative art, sound, installation, collage, dance, creative DAOs (Decentralised Autonomous Organisations) and performance.

From Monday 24 January to 23 May.

Join each Monday at 1pm via this Zoom link

Iman Tajik

Iman Tajik is an Iranian artist and photographer based in Glasgow, Scotland. His work is anchored in a strong social interest and demonstrates an effort to make work that is a critical tool connected to international movements for social change. Tajik’s work addresses issues of contemporary conditions of life with a particular focus on migration and globalisation – thereby bridging the gap between art and activism, to create work as a form of socio-political currency, addressing power structures.

Sarah Khan

Sarah Khan is an artist and writer whose practice spans moving image, text, sound and performance. Drawing on her lived experience, theory and collective memory, she explores the ways in which displacement and liminality are projected upon the ‘othered’ body. She is interested in the constant shift and disruption of space that exists between the periphery and centre and how this is navigated in environments that uphold homogeneity. In both her daily life and practice, she is committed to undoing Western constructs of binary logic and relearning through a decolonial praxis
Sarah is a co-founder of the collective Baesianz which centres artists of Asian heritage from all around the world through publishing, radio shows, artist talks and film screenings.
