Farah Al Qasimi 

Farah Al Qasimi is an artist and musician whose practice over the years has moved fluidly between private and public spaces, but she remains interested in mapping out systems of intrusion and surveillance as they relate to everyday life.

She received her BA from Yale University and her MFA from the Yale School of Art. Her work has been shown in exhibitions including More Good News at Helena Anrather (NYC), No to The Invasion: Breakdowns and Side Effects at CCS Bard (Annondale-on-Hudson, NY), Coming Up Roses at The Third Line (Dubai), the first Biennial for Arab Photography at Institut du Monde Arabe (Paris), Walls and Margins at the Barjeel Art Foundation (Sharjah); and Emirati Expressions at Manarat al Saadiyat (Abu Dhabi).

Farah has participated in residencies at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, the Delfina Foundation, and at the Burren College of Art. In 2014, she participated in the Sheikha Salama Foundation Emerging Artist Fellowship in Abu Dhabi. Her work is housed in public collections including the Barjeel Art Foundation and Maraya Art Centre (both Sharjah, UAE).
