The Veil: Visible and Invisible Spaces

For those of you in Colorado or visiting Colorado, here is something to check out: a traveling art exhibition curated by Jennifer Heath, showing in Boulder at the Dairy Center for the Arts until June 20th:

The Dairy
2590 Walnut Street, Boulder, CO 80302

The exhibition is a thrilling one. Here's the official blurb: exhibition of the work of twenty nine artists from around the world, including videographers, filmmakers and new media artists, as well as painters, sculptors, performance and installation artists. Each considers and re-visions the veil in its many manifestations and interpretations and puts veils and veiling into context. The exhibit intends to engage received wisdom - particularly current clich├ęs and stereotypes about Islamic practices - and to reflect on the great ubiquity, importance and profundity of the veil throughout human history and imagination.
