Join List Center Assistant Curator, Selby Nimrod for a walk through of List Projects 25: Azza El Siddique.

This guided exhibition walkthrough and conversation offers a closer look at Azza El Siddique’s site-specific installation–a sculptural environment that engages the auditory, olfactory, and visual senses, and foregrounds processes of material transformation. El Siddique’s commission at the List Center uncovers intertwined personal and ancient histories of fragrances used in Sudanese Bukhoor incense, and includes elements that will transform and degrade over time. Discover how the work has changed over the course the exhibition and experience the residual effects. This tour offers insight into the curatorial process, especially the commission and production of an artwork that transforms over time.
