Presentation, The Omega institute, Rhinebeck NY September 2013

As part of my U.S trip, I visited the Omega Institute for a couple days and gave a workshop on the doctoral research and the sitcom. We were hosted by my sister, Helema Kadir, Omega’s resident fabric artist and my brother-in-law, Brett Bevell. It was a wonderful experience. During the day, my husband and I […]

Summer neglect and update

  • Posted by Nazima Kadir
I’ve neglected blogging during the summer and I’m not sure why. Maybe its the weather? Its been amazingly sunny and beautiful here in London, which has been simultaneously  pleasurable and disconcerting.

I recently presented during the Open Studios of Studio Strike in Clapham. I had rented a space in the studio for nearly a year—from July 2012 to the end of April 2013 and loved it! I’m still a member of the collective, which incorporates people who are both physically present and those of us who […]
