Nabeela Vega: Ongoing Friday Performances

Each Friday afternoon (through March 24) in the 808 Gallery, Nabeela Vegas performative persona Thahab will conduct a special Friday Prayer. Through weekly prayer, Thahab creates space to reflect on and consider multiplicities of the Muslim experience or just lay on the grass for a moment of meditation. The persona “Thahab” explores the identity of a Muslim American femme in the post-9/11 diaspora. These sessions will later be viewable at the Stone Gallery during the exhibition as part of Nabeela Vega’s residency. Performances will take place approximately between 12:30-1:30pm.
