Neda Al-Hilali


Al Hilali was born in Czechoslovakia and has lived in Baghdad.[1] She moved to southern California in 1961. She trained as an artist in Europe, and extensively at the University of California Los Angeles.[2]

Her early works in the 1960s consisted of flat weavings and knotted hangings. These were followed by large, room-filling installations and a series of giant brown-paper "Tongues" installed on Venice beach.[2][3]

Al Hilali has described her work as "foot tracks of prolonged attention and energy," as each requires many hours of intensive handiwork.[1][2]

Her work is in the collections of various museums, including the Renwick Gallery,[4] Museum of Art and Design,[5] and Utah Museum of Fine Arts.[6] Her papers are at the Archives of American Art.[7]
