In this talk, artist Filwa Nazer will speak about the conceptual and pragmatic influences that led to the transition of her practice from digital print and collage to textiles. She will also discuss how she has been able to use tools from her fashion design background for artistic expression. Finally, she will share her working process—from research to writing to sketching—and the challenges she faced during March Project 2019, when she created her first site-specific work for Sharjah Art Foundation’s Bait Al Hurma.
