She Who Tells a Story: Women Photographers from Iran and the Arab World
BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS • Museum of Fine Arts, Boston • Ongoing
|This exhibition features approximately 100 photographs and two videos, created by 12 women photographers from Iran and the Arab World. The images—ranging from fine art to photojournalism—aim to refute the conception that Arab and Iranian women are “oppressed and powerless,” instead reinforcing that some of the most significant photographic work in the region today is being done by women.|
Participating photographers: Jananne Al-Ani, Boushra Almutawakel, Gohar Dashti, Rana El Nemr, Lalla Essaydi, Shadi Ghadirian, Tanya Habjouqa, Rula Halawani, Nermine Hammam, Rania Matar, Shirin Neshat, and Newsha Tavakolian.
Accompanying the exhibition is a new publication, She Who Tells a Story (MFA Publications, September 2013), authored by exhibition curator Kristen Gresh, the MFA’s Estrellita and Yousuf Karsh Assistant Curator of Photographs.
