Humaira Abid: Searching for Home


Bellevue Arts Museum Eastside
Sept 22, 2017–March 25, 2018, Wednesdays–Sundays


Recommended by Emily Pothast

Born in Pakistan and based in Seattle, Humaira Abid works in wood carving and miniature painting—two very different mediums, related by their capacity to hold rich, meticulous detail. Her previous bodies of work have tackled sociocultural norms, gender roles, and relationships, often expressing very intimate and personal narratives. Abid's first solo museum exhibition in the United States, Searching for Home, is a site-specific installation revolving around the stories of immigrants and refugees in the Pacific Northwest. Political yet poignant, this work renders the humanity of families affected by far-reaching forces into magnificent, stunning forms.
