Etel Adnan
Artist / Writer

Etel Adnan’s career spans several decades and encompasses a wide range of media – including painting, drawing, tapestry, film, ceramics, and leporello artist books – as it does traditions and locations. Adnan was first an author of poetry and prose, often addressing and protesting against the turmoil of the Vietnam War and the Lebanese Civil War. Informing her writing and later her artwork as well, was the landscape, its own history and her emotional and physical response to it. For Adnan, the landscape is mingled with memory, especially a sentiment of displacement, as she was born and raised in Lebanon, but has lived, studied, and worked in France and California throughout her life.

In 2012, Adnan was included in Documenta (13) in Germany. Since then, numerous museums have presented solo exhibitions of the artist’s work, including Etel Adnan:

The Weight of the World, Serpentine Galleries, England (2016); Etel Adnan: La Joie de Vivre, Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Switzerland (2016); Etel Adnan, Irish Museum of Modern Art, Ireland (2015); Etel Adnan: Writing Mountains, Museum der Moderne Salzburg, Austria (2014-2015); and Etel Adnan in All Her Dimensions, Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Qatar (2014). Adnan’s work is included in major public collections such as the British Museum, England; Centre Georges Pompidou, France; Institut du Monde Arabe, France; National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.; M+, Hong Kong, China; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, Tunisia; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

    Publication

    International
    To challenge hegemonic archives, and with them the representations of Blackness inhabiting these very spaces, is to struggle for connection, voice, language, not least for images. Even more so in a time and space in which the stickiness of a colonial past is dismissed. Dealing with the hauntings and echoes of Austria’s colonial past, Belinda Kazeem-Kamiński – visual artist, writer, and recipient of the Camera Austria Prize 2021 – sets the stage for the what-if (more…)
