Alia Ali at EXPO Chicago

Alia Ali is an award-winning Yemeni-Bosnian-US multi-media global artist who has received international acclaim for her photographic and multimedia work, recently described by James Steward, Director of the Princeton University Art Museum, as “politically potent and materially beautiful.” Ali's work dives headfirst into the intricate and often irreconcilable political, historical, and economic legacies of textiles. Considering everything from the expansive global trade routes traveled by certain fabrics, to the classification and nomenclature of particular prints, to the communicative potential of a patternʼs symbolism, Ali guides viewers into a conversation about colonialism, cultural cross-pollination, and borders that simultaneously unite and divide people.
