This Week at LACMA

July 30, 2023

Across generations and working in different media, the artists of Women Defining Women in Contemporary Art of the Middle East and Beyond share a common sense of identity. Their works bear witness to rapidly shifting political developments and often accelerated social transformations taking place in lands extending from Africa to Western and Central Asia, as well as in diasporic communities.

Visit LACMA this week to see Women Defining Women and listen to nine artists from the exhibition discuss art, notions of womanhood, and their relationships to Islamic societies in an exclusive interview.
