Women Defining Women in Contemporary Art of the Middle East and Beyond

Art Show: 23/04/2023 • All Day • Los Angeles

Event Details

This exhibition presents 75 works by women artists who were born or live in what can broadly be termed Islamic societies. 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. Across generations and working in different media, the artists share a common sense of identity not exclusively “Middle Eastern” but certainly female, which is evident in their work.

Presented by Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the show runs until September 24, 2023.
