Hend Al Mansour: Women, Power, Freedom and Art
Presented by The Arts at Wellesley
February 4 - February 15, 2013
Hend Al Mansour uses the beautiful language of art for the sake of social change toward justice, equality, and freedom of expression. Her work explores religious and social belief systems, especially those dealing with women, sexuality and understanding the other. Combining media such as Arabic calligraphy, fabrics, sculptures and scents, Al Mansour often creates portraits of women she has researched or interviewed directly. Come experience and be inspired by Al Mansour’s intricate and expressive works of contemporary Arab art and social commentary!
