Artist Talk - Hassan Hajjaj
Wednesday 19th. March 2014
Admission Free

Hassan Hajjaj's installation My Rock Stars Experimental, Volume I is simultaneously a haut-couture street experiment and a revival of African photography from the 1960s and 70s, while celebrating present-day musicians, unsung artists and personal inspirations in the artist's life. The film is part of a series of works which is an on-going examination of belonging in an increasingly globalized society where boundaries of cultural identity – most notably African, Arabic and Western – are constantly changing. 

Hassan Hajjaj has established an international following for his photography and video, and his work features in several prestigious public and private collections worldwide including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art (LACMA), Los Angeles and Kamel Lazaar Foundation, Tunisia.
