Artist Talk & Slide Presentation

Artist Talk with Taraneh Hemami
& Slide Presentation with Sana Makhoul

Saturday June 16, 2007 @ 2pm, FREE

Artist Taraneh Hemami has been exhibiting and teaching in the Bay Area since 1991. Her
work has ranged from large, personal paintings to intimate book arts, from sculptures to
installations, from performances to digital sound pieces. Join Hemami for a discussion
about her new work and exhibition currently on view, Most Wanted. This is followed by a
slide presentation by Sana Makhoul entitled In the Middle of..., which looks at the
visual images used throughout history at times of war to impact people and construct
stereotypes. Makhoul specifically examines the misrepresentation of and stereotyping of
Arabs and Muslims in many public arenas, from television and cinema to newspapers and the
fine arts. This talk will examine these images and how contemporary artists are
addressing them.

Film Screening Curated by Sana Makhoul

Featuring Edward Said: On Orientalism &
Introduction to the End of an Argument

Wednesday June 27, 2007 @ 7pm
$5-$15/sliding scale, general admission

Intersection for the Arts teams up with curator Sana Makhoul to present a film screening
featuring two films presented in conjunction with Most Wanted, the latest exhibition on
view in our gallery.

Edward Said: On Orientalism includes an engaging and lavishly illustrated interview with
the late Edward Said, whose book Orientalism has been profoundly influential in a diverse
range of disciplines since its publication in 1978. Said talks about the context within
which the book was conceived, its main themes, and how its original thesis relates to the
contemporary understanding of "the Orient" as represented in the mass media.

Introduction to the End of an Argument features a combination of film, documentary news
coverage, and excerpts of "live" footage shot in the West Bank and Gaza strip. This film
critiques representations of the Middle East, Arab culture, and the Palestinian people
produced by the West.
