2019 Unilever #Unstereotype Award Winner, Artist
Sara Gulamali is a British born, now Vancouver based, artist and graduate from the BA Fine Art course at Central Saint Martins. Her practice inhabits a number of roles, whether it be writer, curator, facilitator, performer, filmmaker and collaborator.
Specifically, her practice can be defined as a post colonial, navigation of the hyper-visibility or invisibility of Muslim women, through the use of green screen technology. Sara takes inspiration from her family’s diasporic history and its relation to her reflections upon her own identity. Currently she is doing an online Google Maps residency, ‘Kiss me Thru the Phone’ , with longtime collaborator Maria Mahfooz for Offsiteproject.org – the work follows the archival friendship of these two artists.
Sara also is known for her co-running of the photography collective Muslim Sisterhood, a platform dedicated to celebrating and creating opportunities for Muslim women. She is also the winner of the 2018 Hollyport Capital prize and past winner of the MullenLowe NOVA Unilever #Unstereotype Award in 2019.
