Five distinguished scholars will provide insights into Lalla Essaydi's photographic transformation of Orientalist art. Approaching the artist's work from the context of Islamic culture, European ideas of the Middle East, and contemporary photographic practice, the speakers will provide a rich platform from which to understand the artist's intentions. The presentations will be followed by panel discussion. Free museum admission; for reservations, please call (732) 932 7237, x650. Seating is limited.
