Lara Arafeh is a graduate of Central Saint Martins and Sotheby’s Institute. Her work and interests focus on the relationship between art and social activism as well as decolonial feminist theory in relation to Arab women. Lara brings together the Arab community in New York by hosting talks with artists and creatives from the community.
Project: Lara will assist with planning an interdisciplinary project, Survivance: Centering Native Voices through Anti-Colonial Actions (tentative title), that will culminate in an exhibition, catalog, and convening. This wide-reaching institutional initiative will radically center Native voices and challenge collective understandings of the pivotal role of Native peoples in United States history.
