I Contain Multitudes
Frederick Layton Gallery, Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, from January 18 to March 9, 2019
If you are visiting Milwaukee this winter, stop by MIAD Galleries to explore I Contain Multitudes, a group exhibit featuring alumna Farida Hughes, MFA'94. The show includes artists from diverse heritages, many currently working in Minnesota, who examine how multiculturalism and navigating between different social norms affects each of them as well as how it relates to the issues of immigration and diversity in our contemporary society. The paintings, drawings, mixed media objects and installations juxtapose visual language, gender inequalities, an cultural icons.
Farida Hughes, MFA'94 is an American abstract artist of Asian-Indian/American descent, explores community engagement and movement in her mixed media work.
