Larissa Sansour (Art Creates Change: Kym Pruesse Speaker Series)

Groundbreaking contemporary artist Larissa Sansour will present her interdisciplinary work, including the speculative trilogy, In the Future They Ate from the Finest Porcelain (2016), A Space Exodus (2009) and Nation Estate (2012). Sansour's artworks, especially those addressing the history of Palestine and the Middle East, are immersed in current political discourses and dystopian future imaginings, combining live motion and CGI. Sansour's works have shown internationally, most recently at The Mosaic Rooms in London, UK; Berlinale; the Guanajuato International Film Festival winning the Best Short Experimental award; Amrani Gallery in Madrid; and last year at the Aga Khan Museum in Toronto.
