User Bio

Nabeela Vega is a Boston-based Artist and Springborn Fellow at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts/ Tufts University.

Her work focuses on the relationship between symbol and archetype. In exploration of her own experience as a Muslim Refusenik, her works speak to the relationship of Islam to both herself as well as to contemporary social politics. Within this frame, she seeks to create a semiotic discourse between the specificity of Islamic Culture and its position in today’s society using her own experience as a vehicle for the work.
