We are full steam ahead with our major new exhibition - Personal Revolutions, which brings together an all-female curatorial and production team to produce a survey of groundbreaking female artists from Syria. What were the struggles and achievements of women practicing art in the early 20th century in Syria, and who are today’s most pioneering and daring names? Curated by Mouna Atassi, the show features multiple different media and explores themes ranging from home and hearth to explorations of identity, political strife, the female body and taboo, displacement, and personal growth. Artists include Dorreih Fakhoury Hammad, Laila Nseir, Hiba Ansari, Sulafa Hijazi, Laila Muraywid, Randa Maddah, Nour Asalia, Khadija Baker, Nagham Hudaifa, and more.
