Rosalind Nashashibi (b. 1973) is a London-based artist known for her 16mm films, as well as her paintings and prints. Her films convey inner experiences of moments and events, often considering the politics of relations in the community and extended family, while merging everyday observations with fictional or mythological elements. Like her films, her paintings move between impressions and the more concrete depiction of forms or figures. In 2019 Nashashibi was appointed as artist in residence for 2020 by the National Gallery, London; over the course of a year she worked in close proximity to the gallery’s collection, research, and teams. As the gallery’s inaugural artist in residence, she has explored the ongoing dialogue between the art of the past and that of today, as well as the collection’s influence on her own practice as a painter. The book includes enlightening conversations between Nashashibi and two artist colleagues, Elena Narbutaitė and Lucy Skaer.

Daniel F. Herrmann is curator, and Priyesh Mistry is associate curator, of modern and contemporary projects at the National Gallery, London. Andrew Parkinson is curator at Pier Arts Centre, Orkney.
