The Red Chador

Alum Anida Yoeu Ali's Solo Show Celebrates Public Encounters

A solo show by the School of the Art Institute alum Anida Yoeu Ali (MFA 2010) is now on view at the Seattle Asian Art Museum through July 7. The exhibition Hybrid Skin, Mythical Presence includes documentation and installation art of Ali’s previous site-specific work with two live performances by the artist.

Born in Cambodia and raised in Chicago, Ali’s performances and public agitations challenge otherness. She enacts personas of hybrid, religious aesthetics to present alternative visibilities. The live performance of Red Chador scheduled in June will feature the artist and six performers wearing sequined, colored chadors while holding signs that read provocative text such as “BAN ME.”
