Thursday, March 2, 2017

Current Interdisciplinary Master's in Art, Media and Design student Mariam Magsi's artwork was recently featured on the 'She Does the City' blog. In the interview, Magsi describes her interdisciplinary practice spanning photography, video, oral history, performance and installation. She goes into more depth about the artwork in her upcoming thesis exhibition at the OCAD U Graduate Gallery this April 2017 titled Purdah:

"Purdah is the overarching umbrella concept of the project under which I record the diversity in the readings, meanings and interpretations of veils associated with Islam, while studying their social, historical and gendered contexts, through a postcolonial, intersectional, feminist lens. Using travel-led, ethnographic research methods, I have ventured to Pakistan, Morocco, Dubai and Muslim-populated parts of Toronto to obtain narratives, photographs and videos of individuals that engage with veiling."
