Artist Talk: Sarah Brahim

February 20, 2020 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Sarah Brahim’s art practice centers collaborative work with artists across mediums. She has studied, choreographed, performed, and taught jazz, contemporary, ballet, and tap dance. Brahim attended the San Francisco Conservatory of Dance, and in 2016, she graduated from the London Contemporary Dance School (LCDS) with a BA Honours degree in contemporary dance. Brahim performs, choreographs, and directs movement professionally across the United States, Europe, and the Middle East. Her performances and film works touch on themes of culture, loss, identity, veiling, borders, race, migration, transnational experience, women of color experience, body in landscape, and the imprint places leave within us.

Join artists from a range of disciplines in the galleries for lively conversations about works of art on view at the Museum and how they relate to their own practices. The talks are followed by complimentary social hour in the museum cafe.

ASL/English Interpreters and automated real time captioning will be provided for this event.

Program begins at 6 p.m. $5 members, $20 non-members, $17 seniors. Space is limited. Tickets available online or on site.
