Dialogue: Deconstructing Femininity Across Cultures

Date & Time November 13, 2013 9:30pm
Location
Eaton 201
Program
NIMEP

[EXPOSURE] and NIMEP are bringing the She Who Tells a Story MFA Exhibit to Tufts next Wednesday evening. The exhibit showcases the work of 12 pioneering female photographers from across the Middle East and has won broad acclaim for its nuanced and unexpected portrayal of identity, gender, conflict, and day to day life.

We're visiting the exhibition on Saturday and bringing memories, thoughts, and slides back with us. We encourage those unable to make the trip to join in on the dialogue, where we'll show slides of the images we discuss to get you up to speed. If you're reading this before 1pm Saturday, consider going on the trip! https://www.facebook.com/events/245744318912049
