Sama Alshaibi’s photographs and videos situate her own body as a site of performance in consideration of the social and gendered impacts of war and migration. Her work complicates the coding of the Arab female figure found in the image history of photographs and moving images. Alshaibi’s sculptural installations evoke the disappearance of the body and act as counter-memorials to war and forced exile. In 2021, Alshaibi was named a Guggenheim Fellow in Photography. Sama Alshaibi received her MFA from CU Boulder in 2005.
