INTERCONNECTED

Group exhibition featuring 18 women artists from across Africa and the Middle East; exploring connections and cross-cultural ties formed by art.

STATEMENT

Forme Femine in collaboration with Arneli Art Gallery presents ‘INTERCONNECTED’ - a cross-cultural group exhibition between Africa and the Middle East.
Facilitating a space for dialogue and creativity, the two platforms have converged two different civilizations; of affluent history, culture and traditions, seeking to advance the participation and practice of women artists in contemporary art.


‘Interconnected’ is a virtual exhibition that explores the artistic connections between 18 female artists; 9 from Lebanon and 9 from across Africa(1 from Ghana, 6 from Nigeria, 2 from South Africa).
The exhibition traverses through the familiar ties and interconnectedness of human psychological and social experiences relevant to current evolving times. It further breeds an opportunity for women artists from these regions to retain their individual account of events, own their narratives and share visual depictions with a global audience via an online platform.


The exhibition features 36 works in a variety of mediums and perspectives outlined in paintings, photography, mixed media and digital art. Teetering between the known and the unknown, abstraction and figuration; the selected artists examine the interconnected complexities of human experience detailed through distinct artistic styles and approaches - in personal theory and form.
