    Sama Alshaibi (b. Basra, Iraq, 1973), is a multi-media artist who employs the use of photography, video/object hybrids, and installation. Alshaibi’s practice explores spaces of conflict, post-war and migration to tease out issues of citizenship and power. Frequently featuring herself as a protagonist within her works, she applies the body as an allegorical device to investigate geographical metaphors that exist between spaces of political and social oppression.  She is Professor of Photography, Video,Imaging at the University of Arizona, School of Art, Tucson, Arizona, USA.
