February 7, 2020 - April 18, 2020

Event Navigation

Curator: Jennifer-Navva Milliken

The Center for Art in Wood is pleased to present Searching for Home, the first solo museum exhibition for Seattle-based, Pakistan-born artist Humaira Abid. Abid is well known for her unique visual language, which blends the discipline of traditional Mughal miniature painting and sculpture in wood. Her career-long decision to specialize in woodcarving, a male-dominated field, reflects her commitment to challenging stereotypes and exposing taboos. The beauty and mastery of Abid’s to-scale carvings of seemingly benign objects, ripe with subtext, belie the violence, cruelty, upheaval, and instability in society, especially that to which women are subject.
