Liu Institute for Global Issues

Generation Return: Art and Justice Tour with Anida Yoeu Ali

Thu Apr 18 2013 5pm
Royal Bank Cinema

Anida Yoeu Ali is actively engaged in international dialogues, community activism, and artistic resistance to multiple sites of oppression. She upholds the belief that art is a critical tool for individual and societal transformation.

Ali, born in Cambodia and raised nearly all her life in Chicago, returned to live in Cambodia in 2011 after nearly 3 decades away. She is part of a returning diaspora of artists and thinkers creating narratives of Cambodia beyond war and poverty.

Through performance and video works, she will present a body of work which provocatively considers the diasporic past/present contours of the Cambodian American experience.
