A Travelling Art Exhibition:
THE VEIL: Visible & Invisible Spaces – A Travelling Art Exhibition
The Veil: Visible and Invisible Spaces is an exhibition, curated by Jennifer Heath, of thirty-six works of art, each of which considers The Veil, its many manifestations and interpretations and puts veils and veiling into context.
Visible and Invisible Spaces intends to engage received wisdom about the veil – particularly current clichés and stereotypes about Islamic practices – and to reflect on the great ubiquity, importance and profundity of the veil throughout human history and imagination. Visible and Invisible Spaces asks artists to investigate the veil in its broadest contexts. The exhibition will be divided into three categories to be interpreted widely: The Sacred Veil, The Sensuous Veil , and The Sociopolitical Veil. Visible and Invisible Spaces, however, is not a documentary exhibition.
Visible and Invisible Spaces is a visual companion to Heath’s edited volume, The Veil: Women Writers on Its History, Lore, and Politics (University of California Press, forthcoming 2008). The exhibition, Visible and Invisible Spaces, invited visual artists – including videographers, filmmakers and new media artists, as well as painters, sculptors, performance and installation artists – from around the world to investigate and re-vision the veil.
