Join us in celebrating Muslim Women Artists from across Toronto

(mus)interpreted, is a group exhibition that showcases the work of emerging and established young Muslim women artists. Using painting, photography and installation art, we express our lived realities. As Muslimah artists we recognize that we belong deeply to ourselves and not the constructions created by the media, governments or our communities. Together we explore and interrogate the notions and spaces in which Muslimah’s are defined and redefined. Rooted in Regent Park, the show takes up physical space in a neighborhood where Muslimahs have created art for decades. (mus)interpreted is a collective visioning of our individual and communal herstories shared and negotiated through our artistic work.

(mus)interpreted will run from April 1st until May 1st at the Regent Park Daniel’s Spectrum.

Opening reception: is on April 1st with a reception at the Artspace lounge from 6 to 8pm. The evening will feature artist talks and yummy food provided by the Afghan Women’s Catering Group.
