Gallery Talk: Veiled Women of The Holy Land | In the past two decades it has become increasingly common to see Jewish and Muslim women alike covering their entire body with several layers of shawls, wraps, and veils in adherence to strict laws of religion and modesty. The exhibition presents the attire of each group, photographs and texts, and a video work by art director and consultant Ari Teperberg offering a glimpse in the women’s private world. Together, they invite viewers to grapple with these questions – and answer them in their own personal way. Gallery Talk, Tuesday June 25th 19:00. For more info, click here.
