Farah Al Qasimi: Hello Future

Hello Future is a culmination of Al Qasimi’s photographic, performance and film practice, unified within her keen focus on surface and texture, and the revealing visual influences of the splashy and florid. Farah is a bright and rising multidisciplinary artist whose work examines postcolonial structures of power, gender and aesthetic in the Persian Gulf states and global cultural confluence and migration at-large. The monograph includes an essay by Negar Azimi and conversation between Al Qasimi and artist Meriem Bennani.

Farah Al Qasimi (b.1991, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates; lives in Brooklyn and Dubai) works in photography, video, and performance.

Farah is recipient of the third annual Capricious Photo Award.  The 2019-2020 jury was lead by Capricious Founder/Publisher Sophie Mörner and Executive Director Anika Sabin, alongside Kim Bourus, Sam Contis, John Edmonds, Sunil Gupta, Amanda Hajjar, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, and Ka-Man Tse.
