Welch School Galleries Exhibition: Sept 27 - Nov 16, 2012
Curated by Welch School Galleries director Cynthia Farnell. Rawiya: She Who Tells a Story will be on view September 27 through November 16, coinciding with the month-long photography festival, Atlanta Celebrates Photography.
Rawiya is a photography collective founded by female photographers from across the Middle East. Rawiya presents an insider's view of a region in flux, balancing its contradictions while reflecting on social and political issues and stereotypes. As a collective, Rawiya's photographers respect the humandignity of the stories they tell, pooling resources and vision to produce in-depth photo-essays and long-term projects. Rawiya, meaning 'she who tells a story' brings together the photographic styles of Myriam Abdelaziz, Tamara Abdul Hadi, Laura Boushnak, Tanya Habjouqa, DaliaKhamissy and Newsha Tavakolian.
Rawiya: She Who Tells A Story at the Welch School Galleries is Rawiya’s first exhibition as a collective in the United States. The exhibit and associatedprograms are supported in part by the Center for Collaborative and International Arts at Georgia State University, Fulton County Arts and Culture and the Visiting Artist Program of the Ernest G. Welch School of Art & Design.
