Event Series Dates
Through September 24
This exhibition presents 75 works by women artists born or living in what can broadly be termed Islamic societies. Largely perceived as voiceless and invisible, they are neither. Each through her unique vision is fashioning not only her own definition of self but also helping to redefine and empower women everywhere and to challenge still-persistent stereotypes. Their art depicts a breadth of inventively and often ideologically conceived women’s imagery, bearing witness to rapidly shifting political developments and often accelerated social transformations taking place in lands extending from Africa to Western and Central Asia, as well as in diasporic communities. Their powerful narratives are embedded in their art, expressing personal and universal concerns. Across generations and working in different media, the artists shaAdd Newre a common sense of identity not exclusively “Middle Eastern” but certainly female, which is evident in their work.
