2012 Exhibition

The Fertile Cresent: Gender, Art, and Society

August 27 - October 19, 2012

The Fertile Crescent book and core exhibition focus on 24 artists from the various countries that comprise the area (see list below), among them artists well known in Euro-American countries such as Mona Hatoum, Parastou Forouhar, Shirin Neshat, Sigalit Landau, and Shazia Sikander, but also artists whose work is primarily known only in the Middle East. These artists address the status of women in the Middle East today, drawing from such themes as orientalism, cultural heritage, colonialism, globalization, surveillance, regional conflict, identity and the impact of multi-national geographic existence, and the iconography of the veil. The essays dissect the artists' work and investigate the theoretical, historical, and political sources that have shaped their creative achievement.
