“Otherness” – Nama Khalil

(c) Nama Khalil

Nama Khalil received her Bachelor in Fine Arts from the Cleveland Institute of Art. Khalil’s Thesis Exhibition was derived from her personal experience, exploring instances of silenced and suppressed voice in post 9/11 society. She explores the notion of ‘Otherness” in her work while attempting to speak for herself as an Other, or acting as a mediator between her subjects and her viewers. She has her Masters in Middle East Studies from University of Michigan and continues to explore current issues prevalent to United States and Middle East, in her academic and art career.
