      Women Photographers from Iran and the Arab World

*August 27, 2013 - January 12, 2014*
Henry and Lois Foster Gallery (Gallery 158)


    Provocative work challenges perceptions of Middle Eastern identity

"She Who Tells a Story" introduces the pioneering work of twelve 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.

These prominent photographers have tackled the very notion of 
representation with passion and power, questioning tradition and 
challenging perceptions of Middle Eastern identity. Their provocative 
work ranges from fine art to photojournalism and provides insights into 
political and social issues, including questions of personal identity 
and exploring the complex political and social landscapes of their home 
regions in images of great sophistication, expressiveness, and beauty.
