Biography/ Sawsan AlSaraf

Sawsan AlSaraf was born in Iraq, and has moved between the Middle East and North America since 1977. She received her BFA in Studio Art from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, and MFA in Visual Art from Vermont College of Fine Arts, USA. A visual and multimedia artist, AlSaraf draws her references from her life experiences as an expatriate Iraqi woman. She juxtaposes these references with her critical analyses of notions of home, belonging, and identity that have developed from a life in Diaspora and that emerge from the current discourse on global displacement and mobility. Since 1986, AlSaraf has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Canada, U.A.E, Amman, Lebanon, the United States, and Iraq.
