Fatal Attraction is an introspection into the complex relationship between identity and the hierarchical structures that suppress it. The work delves into issues of culture, language, and the gaze, playing on the fine line between fetishization and representation. It dares to question the authority of cultural expectation, while simultaneously seeking to carve space.

Fatal Attraction features work from Noor Shakeel (B.F.A. '22).
