Dawit L. Petros is a visual artist, researcher and educator. His work is informed by studies of global modernisms, theories of diaspora, and postcolonial studies. These concerns derive from lived experiences: Petros is the child of Eritrean emigrants, and spent formative years in Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Kenya before settling in central Canada. Petros installs photographs, moving images, sculptural objects, and sound work according to performative, painterly, or site responsive logics.
Dawit L. Petros is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Photography at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
