Interview with Saudi artist Ahmed Mater (The Guardian)

I appear — albeit without granting permission — in the Guardian’s video about Saudi artist Ahmed Mater.

I first surface c. the 2:48 mark; at c. 3:34, the artist laughs at my question about whether there’s a Trump hotel in Mecca; and at 3:55 and 4:47, I ask two more questions (apparently, I asked too many). The video is embedded below:

My article about Mater, “A Changing Mecca Is the Focus of the First U.S. Exhibition to Feature a Saudi Artist,” appeared in Smithsonian magazine last April.
