Last month Art Metropole announced the departure of Bookstore Manager/Curator Jesse Huisken, who is returning to school in the fall. Today they issued a press release announcing his replacement, Nasrin Himada.
Nasrin is a writer, editor, and curator from Montréal. Her interdisciplinary research interests focus on Palestinian cinema, art and poetics, and the militarization of urban space through prison infrastructure and police surveillance. She has lectured extensively on these topics, including presentations at California Institute of the Arts, Georgetown University, and INCA Seattle. Her curatorial work has been exhibited at DHC/ART: Foundation for Contemporary Art, Echo Park Film Center, 16 Beaver, and Image + Nation. From 2011 to 2016, Nasrin co-edited the journal Scapegoat: Architecture/Landscape/Political Economy. Currently, she is co-editor of the inaugral issue of Moving Image Culture Etc, on the theme of invisible labour.
Nasrin begins on May 26, 2016.
