Where Gulfography Started…

I found this short piece about women artists in the UAE and the lives of young women. It is a great example of how art can be used to communicate both the tortured present and a future with greater liberty. A future I for one wish to see in the Middle East. The performing and visual arts can be very powerful means of communication. It is something I wish we would do more of in the Conservative/ Liberty community.

Gulfography

 

Gulfography was inspired by an exhibit called Privately  by Shammi Samano in Dubai, which showcased the photographs of female Emirati college students.  The exhibit was praised for being a “remarkably honest and spellbinding” look at lives of young women in the UAE.  Wanting to continue to share the journey of Privately, we decided to get virtual and create an on-going global exhibit that can cross geographical and even ideological boundaries.
