Lalla Essaydi was born and raised in Morocco and educated in the West before moving to Saudi Arabia for several years. The United States-based artist explores issues of gender, cross-cultural identity and the prevalent myths of Orientalism. Working across multiple disciplines—including painting, video, installation and photography—Essaydi challenges the social norms and hierarchies that shaped her life as a young girl in Morocco.


The exhibition features more than 10 years of work from nearly every series in her career: Converging Territories (2003-2004), Les Femmes du Maroc (2005-2007), Harem (2009), and Bullets (2009-2017).
