Generation brings together two generations of Iraqi-Canadian artists—Sawsan AlSaraf and her daughters Tamara and Sundus Abdul Hadi—offering a dialogue that illuminates how three members of the same family respond creatively to complex themes of representation, identity, and displacement in a contemporary global world. Each artist has a unique point of view and preferred media, yet they enjoy working as collaborators to share ideas and family experiences.
This presentation explores the complexity of “minority” communities, specifically Arab communities, which are often simultaneously subjected to both stereotyping and underrepresentation. The three featured artists mine both personal and geographical territory in order to foster a sense of connection among all people, focusing on our shared humanity as the unifying force.
