San Francisco Art Institute, San Francisco, CA.

2Fik is a French-born Québécois artist of Moroccan heritage whose work playfully engages questions of identity and gender to discomfiting ends. 2Fik eases boundaries between propriety and scandal to suggest that identity is fractured and lost in translation. Defining himself as a stateless person, he has a concept of self informed by the multiple, hybrid identities he inhabits in order to survive in French, Moroccan, and Québécois cultures.
2Fik is invited to the San Francisco Art Institute as part of the Visiting Artists and Scholars Lecture Series (VAS), which provides a forum for engagement and dialogue with major figures in international contemporary art and culture.
Through lectures, screenings, and performances, the series creates intimate connections between SFAI and the public, and invites individuals to contribute to the spirit of curiosity that drives the SFAI community.
The VAS Series is free and open to the public.
