Rosalind Nashashibi at the National Gallery
A richly illustrated book looking at the recent work of Rosalind Nashashibi as the National Gallery's first artist in residence
Rosalind Nashashibi (b. 1973) is a London-based artist known for her 16mm films, as well as her paintings and prints. Her films convey inner experiences of moments and events, often considering the politics of relations in the community and extended family, while merging everyday observations with fictional or mythological elements.
Like her films, her paintings move between impressions and the more concrete depiction of forms or figures. In 2019 Nashashibi was appointed as artist in residence for 2020 by the National Gallery, London; over the course of a year she worked in close proximity to the gallery's collection, research, and teams. As the gallery's inaugural artist in residence, she has explored the ongoing dialogue between the art of the past and that of today, as well as the collection's influence on her own practice as a painter.
The book includes an enlightening conversation between Nashashibi and two artist colleagues, Elena Narbutaite and Lucy Skaer.
