POWER project: Nabil Vega: Chena: The Moss of Time

Chena: The Moss of Time is a multimedia project that explores image making and oral histories with individuals at the intersections of being Queer, Muslim and South Asian. Nabil has been traveling for 6 months initiating this project in New York, Boston, Toronto, London, Berlin, Dhaka, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago. For The POWER Project, Nabil will be sharing some of the interviews and photographs produced, and set up a space for listening, viewing and image making with the intention of connecting with communities in Chicago. 

Members of the communities listed above are encouraged to visit and be interviewed by Nabil to grow Chena: The Moss of Time.
Support to the project can be given through @fractured atlas : https://www.fracturedatlas.org/site/FiscalSponsorship/profile?id=17092 


Nabil is a Chicago-based Bengali artist working with new media, photography, socially engaged art and performance. Their most notable projects include “Visiting Thahab” (ongoing), a rich exploration of the contemporary presence and experience of the Muslim femme. Vega creates immersive works that examine elements of our lived experiences as they intersect with identity, politics, and queerness. Since 2014 they have been organizing and curating performance and new media works in collaboration with organizations and artist run platforms such as MIX NYC and their own platform VIX: Virtual International Exchange. Nabil is current programmer at The Nightingale, a rough and ready microcinema in Chicago's Noble Square. Vega is recipient of the prestigious Traveling Fellowship (2018) and Springborn Fellowship (2011) from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Their works have been exhibited nationally and internationally in museums, festivals and galleries; including a solo exhibition at the New Bedford Museum of Art (2018) and featured in publications such as The Guardian, Huffington Post, Emergency Index Vol. 6, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post & The Aerogram.
