About the artist:

Khadija Baker is a Montreal-based, multidisciplinary artist of Kurdish-Syrian descent. She is also a core member of the Centre for Oral History & Digital Storytelling (COHDS) at Concordia University.

Her installations investigate social and political themes centered on the uncertainty of home and homeland as they relate to persecution, identity, displacement, and memory. Her multi-disciplinary installations (textile, sculpture, audio/video) involve participative storytelling and performance to create active spaces of empathy and greater understanding.

Baker has held several solo exhibitions in galleries and institutions across Canada, and has participated in many joint exhibitions around the world.
