Lalla Essaydi Revisions: Introduction

Born in Morocco, Lalla Essaydi's career as an artist began when she moved to France to attend the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in the early 1990s. Today she lives and works in New York and Marrakesh. This digital exhibition from the National Museum of African Art brings together some of her photographs, paintings, and multimedia installations. As the site remarks "Essaydi confronts expectations founded on historical representations and widely held preconceptions." The materials here are divided into four sections, including Photography and Embodiment. The Photography area is a great place to start, and it contains a slider bar that allows visitors to wander through these arresting images. Moving on, the Embodiment area contains a clip of Essaydi talking about her photographs of her native Morocco. Finally, the Painting area features Essaydi again talking about the thought process behind her paintings.
