This Story Begins and Ends With Us: Basma Alsharif
This Story Begins and Ends With Us, June/July 2012
Toronto: A Space, 2012
This exhibition programme written by the curators provides insight into artist Basma Alsharif's personal history and motivations. Three of Alsharif's videos on exhibit are discussed.
Alsharif's videos explore the idea that all stories are one story in many different guises. The artist has an interest in how people relate to and internalize geo-political shifts that they experience as well as those they inherit from past generations.
