Realism in Rawiya curator’s tour
2.00 – 3.00 pm
Join curator Jess Kenny for a tour of Realism in Rawiya exhibition. Rawiya, meaning ‘she who tells a story’ in Arabic, are the first all-female photographic collective to emerge from the Middle East. The Arab Spring, life in Gaza, graffiti in Egypt and Saudi women who desire to sing solo on stage; these are among the stories revealed through this exhibition of their work.
Jess will take you on a tour of the show, telling the stories behind the photographs, as documented by photographers Myriam Abdelaziz (Cairo), Tanya Habjouqa (East Jerusalem), Delia Khamissy (Beirut) and Newsha Tavakolian (Tehran).
All welcome, admission free
