Hayv Kahraman

March 16 - March 31, 2019

Los Angeles-based, Iraq-born Hayv Kahraman explores themes of gender, memory and exile through her paintings and sculptures. She weaves, tears, and reworks materials into artworks that gesture to traditions found in Europe and Asia, questioning ideas about “east” and “west” and the nature of agency and corporeality. Her exhibition of new artworks inspired by the Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design - “To the Land of the Waqwaq”  - will be on view at the museum from March 29, 2019 – August 4, 2019 and runs concurrently with an exhibition of additional work, “Superfluous Bodies,” in Gallery 10 at the Honolulu Museum of Art.
