Opening Reception at Cantor Arts Center: 'She Who Tells A Story: Women Photographers from Iran and the Arab World'

This exhibition introduces the pioneering work of 12 leading women photographers from Iran and the Arab world: Jananne Al-Ani, Boushra Almutawakel, Gohar Dashti, Rana El Nemr, Lalla Essaydi, Shadi Ghadirian, Tanya Habjouqa, Rula Halawani, Nermine Hammam, Rania Matar, Shirin Neshat, and Newsha Tavakolian.

With their passionate and powerful tackling of the very notion of representation, these photographers question tradition and challenge perceptions of Middle Eastern identity. Their provocative work, ranging from fine art to photojournalism, provides insights into political and social issues, including questions of personal identity and complexity. Through their depictions of the lives and experiences of Middle East women, the photographers explore the complex political and social landscapes of their home regions in images of great sophistication, expressiveness, and beauty.

Exhibition runs from January 28, 2015 to May 4, 2015. To learn more about the exhibition and artworks, click here.
