Artist Talk: Samia Halaby
Abstract painter and influential scholar of Palestinian art Samia Halaby (b. 1936, Jerusalem) describes her creative process, followed by a conversation between the artist and curator Sasha Kalter-Wasserman. Recognized as a pioneer of contemporary abstraction, Halaby has paintings in the collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi. Her practice is rooted in the conviction that abstract painting reflects the principles of motion in nature and has the power to inspire technology with new visual insights.
