This Week at LACMA

April 16, 2023

Women Defining Women in Contemporary Art of the Middle East and Beyond opens Sunday, April 23! Explore 75 works by women artists who were born or live in what can broadly be termed Islamic societies. Frequently perceived as voiceless and invisible, they are neither. Their art bears witness to rapidly shifting political developments and social transformations taking place in lands extending from Africa to Western and Central Asia, as well as in diasporic communities.
