Hear Me Roar: New Art from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Iran

Description

The jamjar Gallery, Dubai | Curator: Dr. Atteqa Ali | 2011

Curator’s note:
Younger than 30, the six artists in “Hear Me Roar” are a fresh generation of practitioners who holler to be heard.
They are energized new voices from Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Iran that offer playful and quirky, yet potent images of life in these nations—from ordinary rituals to extraordinary circumstances, from personal aspirations to collective desires. Their novel approaches to age-old themes present radical views of places that might seem to outsiders to be stuck in the past. The six women disturb our preconceived notions through coaxing us to think differently about the world and women within it.
