This May, YBCA invites artist Arash Fayez—officially known as Faeiz—to explore personal and historical notions of (Muslim) migrations using the Live Practice platform. In his lecture-performance piece 1438, Fayez will carry out the second chapter of his ongoing investigation into the psychoanalytic dimensions of displacement. The artist will transform YBCA into a campsite to reflect on the circumstances of conflict and crisis raised by displaced communities. The evening is broken into two phases, beginning with a lecture from 5–6PM in YBCA’s Screening Room, followed by a series of live situations. Moving between discursive and physical spaces, Faeiz considers the relationship between place and the displaced.
