Make Room For Me

June 8 - June 29

Event Navigation

Make Room For Me is an exhibition showcasing the work of femme and queer-identifying artists with origins in the Middle and Near East. Consisting of all new media works, each artist manipulates space or the body, including its parts, routines, movements, and absence, as a form of expressing identity and heritage. Their manipulation of space and form in their practice serves as a radical act to carve out representation for a subject position commonly misunderstood and underrepresented. 

Featured artists: 

Yasmina Hilal
Sholeh Asgary 
Alia Hijaab 
Noorann Matties 
Nishat Hossain 
Kris Rumman 
Minoosh Zomorodinia
Donia Jarrar
Mette Loulou von Kohl 

The Opening Reception will take place on June 8th from 6-9pm, including a performance by Mette Loulou von Kohl at 7pm

There will also be a casual Artist Talk and lunch, including several Middle Eastern dishes on June 9th at 1pm at Little Berlin.
