Beyond the Veil is a current work in progress with my dear friend and immeasurably talented multidisciplinary artist, Sharifah Emalia Al-Gadrie. It is focused on the reclamation and repositioning of women's work in the artistic world as well as in a broader societal sense. It is an ode to women past and present who have, in hushed voices, found ways to communicate, connect and overcome the things which have held them apart.
Beyond the Veil comprises a series of performance pieces accompanied by a curated digital journal accessible to the public. This online journal accumulates the artists’ ongoing research and connects audiences practically to conceptual themes examined in the artists’ performance.
