Co-curated by Audra Lambert and Natasha Stefanovic
Re-Orientations, an exhibit featuring renowned contemporary artists Samira Abbassy, Camille Eskell, Dhanashree Gadiyar, and Sheida Soleimani, was on view starting February 6, 2019 through March 17, 2019 at La Esquina NYC. Reflecting feminist voices with roots in the Near East and South Asia, Re-Orientations presented a feminist contrast to renowned scholar Edward Said’s “Orientalism”, drawing on the views of post-colonial women artists working across painting, photography and mixed media. Reflecting themes ranging from identity and immigration to domesticity, Re-Orientations mounted a humanizing, figurative approach in reconsidering contemporary approaches to a often overlooked region of the world.
