Sara Shamma and Kathleen Soriano in conversation
20 November 2019
Artist Sara Shamma and curator Kathleen Soriano held a discussion about Shamma’s work and her current exhibition at King's, Sara Shamma: Modern Slavery.
After becoming aware of the display and sale of women and girls in slave markets in Syria and Iraq, Shamma was moved to explore and draw attention to the psychological impact of modern slavery. Sara Shamma: Modern Slavery draws attention to this pressing global issue through a new series of large-scale portraits.
The discussion took place in Bush House Lecture Theatre 2 with a reception in the Arcade and an opportunity to see the exhibition.
