Obscura Gallery presents a photographic exhibition by Lebanese-born American artist Rania Matar entitled SHE which focuses on young women in the US and the Middle East who are leaving the cocoon of home and entering adulthood, highlighting how female subjectivity develops in parallel forms across cultural lines. Artist and mother Rania Matar’s cross-cultural experiences inform her art. She has dedicated her art work to exploring issues of personal and collective identity through photographs of female adolescence and womanhood—both in the United States where she lives, and in the Middle East where she is from.
The Obscura Gallery exhibition is in conjunction with the Radius Books release of the same name and celebrates an opening reception with the artist on Wednesday, August 25 at Obscura Gallery from 5-7pm. The exhibition is on view August 25 – October 31, 2021.
