Humaira Abid: My Shame

Humaira Abid: My Shame

Art Show, Gallery, Installations
Humaira Abid’s new solo exhibition, My Shame, presents carved wood sculptures, often incorporating elements of miniature painting and installation, examining the stigma that women feel over natural, social and cultural issues. The power and politics in women's lives are brought into focus through Abid's global lens as an artist working between the United States and Pakistan. By focusing on taboos and stereotypes that are rarely addressed in public, Abid aims to normalize them through dialogue and discussion. Abid believes that we can heal ourselves through sharing our stories. By exposing what lies beneath veils of secrecy, viewers can find resonance with their own lives. As the shame dissipates, the healing can begin.
