January 25, 2016 - February 17, 2016
Art installation featuring work by Hend Al-Mansour titled Mihrab – Hermitage. Opening reception Thursday, Jan. 28, 5-7 p.m.
Mihrab is Arabic for the sanctuary space where intense workshop takes place, as well as the elaborate niche in mosque architecture that indicates the direction of Mecca. Al-Mansour assembles spiritual objects inspired by a certain woman in a way that epitomizes their divine relationship, or Mihrab. This project seeks to uncover the inner spiritual powers of Arab women in order to examine the concepts of equality and authority within the heart of religious belief system.
