Anida Yoeu Ali is an artist, a scholar and a global agitator. A first-generation Muslim Khmer woman born in Cambodia and raised in Chicago, she investigates the artistic, spiritual and political collisions of a hybrid transnational identity through her installations and performances. She has exhibited at the Palais de Tokyo, the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum and the Musée d’art Contemporain in Lyon, and is a collaborative partner with Studio Revolt, a trans-nomadic artist-run media lab based in Phnom Penh. Ali is the 2015 winner of the Sovereign Asian Art Prize, and is currently the 2015/16 McGill Visiting Assistant Professor in International Studies at Trinity College.
