Mihret Kebede

Friday 2nd March 2012 at 1.00pm
in Scott Sutherland building Lecture Theatre SB42

Ethiopian artist Mihret Kebede’s audio and photographic works explore intimacy, transition and contestation of the status quo. In a public space, she offers individuals new shoelaces in exchange for their old ones; questioning our (in)ability to accept change and navigating established systems.

Mihret is Director of Netsa Art Village, Ethiopia, a platform for young artists to network and share experiences. For the past three years she has organised and contributed towards workshops, exhibitions and poetry recitals.

Her paintings and installations have been exhibited in Africa and America. She is well known in particular for her radical work in which she utilizes her own menstruation blood for her ongoing diary.

Mihert is in the North East as an artist in residence at Deveron Arts, Huntly, where she is organising a project called ‘Slow Marathon”.

This talk will also include a walk.
