Faces Seen Hearts Unknown

Presented by Contemporary Craft at Contemporary Craft

Across the globe, women and girls make up a disproportionate percentage of the millions of people who flee their homes from political conflict, ethnic cleansing and domestic abuse.

Faces Seen Hearts Unknown, co-sponsored with The Conflict Lab, explores these issues through two community dialogues on July 10 at 12 PM and August 14 at 11 AM.

The Faces Seen Hearts Unknown series is organized in concert with CC’s current exhibition Searching for Home. In Searching for Home, Seattle-based, Pakistan-born artist Humaira Abid, presents a human-scaled look at the worldwide refugee crisis.

Saturday, July 10 at 12 PM: Fran Flaherty and Amy Bowman McElhone will lead a gallery discussion addressing themes around maternal identities and care culture.

Saturday, August 14 at 11 AM: Jon Rubin and Selena Shultz will talk about cultural exchange and expand on the engagements of Abid's artworks.
