Make Room For Me

Opening Reception: June 8th 6-9pm, performance by Mette Loulou von Kohl at 7pm

Artist Talk and Lunch: June 9th 1pm

Make Room For Me is an exhibition showcasing the work of femme and queer-identifying artists with origins in the Middle and Near East. Consisting of all new media works, each artist manipulates space or the body, including its parts, routines, movements, and absence, as a form of expressing identity and heritage. Their manipulation of space and form in their practice serves as a radical act to carve out representation for a subject position commonly misunderstood and underrepresented. Make Room For Me is curated by Little Berlin member, Sarah Trad.

Featured artists:

Yasmina Hilal
Sholeh Asgary
Alia Hijaab
Noorann Matties
Nishat Hossain 
Kris Rumman 
Minoosh Zomorodinia 
Donia Jarrar
Mette Loulou von Kohl

In honor of the upcoming exhibition, Little Berlin will be showing films throughout June, made by Middle Eastern female filmmakers, including Nadine Labaki, Danielle Arbid, and Ana Lily Amirpour.
