Grada Kilomba, Mounira al Solh
May 03-Jun 22 2019 - 27 days left
Grada Kilomba's Illusion series retells archetypical Greek myths via traditional African oral storytelling, slowly transforming them into allegories for the post-colonial condition. Mounira al Solh's Raghaba divides the gallery in an act of domestic and linguistic partition. The double-sided patchwork of Lebanese drapes is sewn on one side with the Arabic raghaba, meaning '(to) desire.' On the reverse, these three letters are shuffled to spell ghabar, the Arabic noun for 'dust' or verb for 'to vanish.' Opening Reception: Fri, May 3, 6-8pm.
