New York, NY -The Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality at New York University together with NYU's Center for Media, Culture and History, will bring together artists and writers to discuss how living in exile affects an artist's creative voice. The forum, entitled "Looking Back, Looking Beyond: Women Speak on Art, Politics and Exile - Middle East/USA," will feature internationally celebrated feminist visual artists Shirin Neshat (Iran-USA) and Emily Jacir (Palestine-USA), and NYU cultural critics Ella Shohat (Iraq-Israel-USA) and Shiva Balaghi (Iran-USA).

Looking Back, Looking Beyond will feature discussion - both personal and scholarly - focusing on the ways artistic creativity in exile is shaped by temporal, spatial, socio-political, religious, and cultural contexts, reflecting particularly on the powerful combinations of exile and belonging, gender and politics, and art and displacement.
