Tamara Al-Mashouk

Tamara Al-Mashouk is a London-based Saudi artist. Through multi-channel video, performance, and architectural installation, her work explores the epigenetics of place and movement of people, with a particular focus on the intersections of being Arab, brown, queer and female. 

Al-Mashouk is the founder of Queering Space, an on-going dialogue series that addresses sexuality and space, decolonial feminism(s), borders: both geographic and societal, and explores the word queer and queerness itself as sites of resistance and potential. 

She has a BA in architecture from Wellesley College, a Post-Baccalaureate degree from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (SMFA), and a Master of Fine Arts from the SMFA at Tufts University. Through her work in Boston she founded an annual all-female fine art gallery called FFAG at a music and arts festival in Upstate NY. Her work employs video, performance, and sculptural based installation.
