Morocan Genius: Lalla Essaydi: Les Femmes du Maroc

This weekend is taking a morocan theme. We're heading out to the DeCordova Museum in Lincoln Mass on Black Friday.  No, we we're not looking for oriental rugs. We have a mystical, murmuring exhibit on the mind.

The images in Les Femmes du Maroc present Moroccan women in staged narratives.Tthe women appear to be defined by text, written directly on their bodies, by the artist.

Les Femmes du Maroc offer a voice on the lives of Arab women.  You will face the collision of old and new. Emancipated and enslaved.  I look forward to the confrontation.
