THE FERTILE CRESCENT: GENDER, ART, AND SOCIETY

Unprecedented Program of Exhibitions and Events, and an Accompanying Catalog Featuring Work by Women Artists from the Middle East and the Middle East Diaspora On View at Multiple Venues in Princeton and New Brunswick, NJ
August through December 2012

The Fertile Crescent: Gender, Art and Society, conceived and produced by Ferris Olin and Judith K. Brodsky, co-directors of the Institute for Women and Art at Rutgers, is an ambitious and unparalleled showcase five years in the making of exhibitions, public programming, and an accompanying catalog (ARTBOOK/D.A.P., November 2012) of the same title centered around the work of 24 contemporary feminist artists of Middle East heritage who do not want to be pigeonholed by national or religious identities. The work of these “transnational” artists examines and reveals from their global perspectives the complex social, theological and historic issues that have, and continue to shape, the state of Middle East women.
