Now On view: Social Order
Join us in celebrating our upcoming exhibition, Social Order: Women Photographers from Iran, India and Afghanistan. This exhibition features five contemporary women artists whose work explores the role of women in the context of cultural constructs, religion, censorship, and the media. Each of these artists has left an important mark on the world of contemporary photography through their courageous and relevant work.
From Priya Kambli’s visual explorations of the transience and split cultural identity caused by the act of migration, to Annu Palakunnathu Matthew’s play on her individual “otherness,” this exhibition draws powerful parallels and invites us all to reconsider our personal roles as advocates of tolerance and diversity in our own cities.
