Hamra Abbas Screening at the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage, Brooklyn, NY, USA

Abbas will participate in a video exhibition that will be presented on the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage on the Brooklyn side of the East River on the 3rd of November, 2016, screening her  2011 video work TextEdit.  


The video highlights the climate of fear and surveillance by making edits to an email as it is being written, where the author is sharing her experience of being pregnant. The work attempts to capture the absurdity around this discourse of fear that carries the potential to interpret almost anything as act of suspicion.


For those who do not live in New York City, there will be a live stream of the event which will  begin at 6 PM EST  Nov 3, 2016 and end at 6PM EST on Nov 4, 2016.
