Stephanie Eti Hadad
Stephanie Eti Hadad is the first generation American-Israeli born in Philadelphia, PA (1989). She received her Bachelors in Fine Arts from the University of Florida, New World School of the Arts in Miami, Florida.

Stephanie Eti Hadad comes from an Israeli-Tunisian-Libyan background. Hadad’s works represent and touch upon the physical toll incurred by woman that have taken on the role of a traditional domesticated housewife. Stephanie acknowledges and plays with the conscious ideas her position holds within this role and is continuously being redefined by her experiences.
Through studies, research and exploration of her individuality and culture, Hadad has taken a political and yet poetic approach to voice her works through a diverse and often unconventional range of media, including installation, sculpture, video, photography and works on paper. Each piece corresponds with the others, creating a narrative for women, who especially now, are starting to get the recognition they deserve.
