Beyond Faith: Muslim Women Artists Today
 
Event Title  Beyond Faith: Muslim Women Artists Today
Posted Date  10/11/2019
Event Place  Manchester

This exhibition of five contemporary artists presents their work in conversation with pieces selected from the art collection at the Whitworth.

It brings together the artworks and stories of artists Robina Akhter Ullah, Shabana Baig, Fatimah Fagihassan, Aida Foroutan and Usarae Gul as they explore themes of identity, faith, cultures, otherness and belonging. Investigating key questions around in/exclusion in art spaces and public collections, this group exhibition showcases the important and often overlooked contribution of Muslim women to culture and the arts in contemporary Britain.

Combining graphic design, textiles, painting and photography, Beyond Faith will be shown in the Collection Centre and as part of an artist intervention in Four Corners of One Cloth: Textiles from the Islamic World. It marks the culmination of a major Arts and Humanities Research Council Project on the roles and experiences of Muslim women in the UK Cultural Industries led by Dr Saskia Warren, The University of Manchester.
