Censured by Essma Imady

Essma Imady ’16, MFA, is one of the recipients of the tenth round of Art(ists) on the Verge Commissions (AOV10) presented by Northern Lights.mn. AOV10 is an intensive, mentor-based fellowship program for five Minnesota-based emerging artists or artist groups working experimentally at the intersection of art, technology, and digital culture with a focus on network-based practices that are interactive and/or participatory.

Imady’s work addresses the political aspects of the personal, recognizing that she—we all—live a politicized existence. Her goal for the AOV fellowship is to explore the thorny intersections of religion and politics using screens to investigate ritual and condition the body.
