Curated by Sarah Trad, Batikh Batikh

Batikh Batikh is a pop-up cinema and gallery that centers SWANA (South West Asian North African) women and queer artists. BB focuses on bringing SWANA films to Philadelphia and helping local queer and women artists acquire resources and solo exhibitions at rented spaces. Based on an anti-capitalist art model, where all art is free to the public with featured artists paid, these screenings and exhibitions will provide programming that showcases SWANA and queer joy outside the Western gaze.
