Opening Tonight: Women in WindowsAuthor:Lindsey Shook
Making a big debut tonight is Women in Windows, a multi-part video installation placed throughout the windows and storefronts of Chinatown’s historic Chung King Road by Los Angeles-based curator Zehra Ahmed which focuses on the confluence of culture, religion and society in an exploration of female identity. Each video art piece will challenge the many current definitions of femninity, by six female artists including Alima Lee, Arshia Fatima Haq, Gazelle Samizay, Jasdeep Kang, Muna Malik and Yumna Al-Arashi.
“The Girl Who Walks” by Jasdeep Kang
The mission of this dynamic series is to redefine the perspective of female worth. From advertisments to peep shows, women (especially women of color), are often subject to objectification and explotation for cultural and economical consumption. Women In Windows is produced and curated by Zehra Ahmed and is supported by Automata Arts, Chungking Studio, General Lee’s, Imprint Projects, The Institute for Art and Olfaction, Lisa Derrick Fine Arts, Poetic Research Bureau Preen Inc. and Press Friends.
