Rooted Revelations – Art Exhibition Opening Reception at Firefolk Arts
March 9 @ 3:00 pm – 6:00 pm
This art exhibition centers Arab / Muslim cultural subjects, and is open March 9 – April 30.
Feda Eid is a Lebanese-American visual artist living on occupied, unceded, territory of the Wampanoag, Nipmuc, and Massachusett People (Quincy,MA). Her portrait/self portrait work explores the expression of heritage, tradition, identity and the often tense but beautiful space between what is said, what is felt, and and what is lost in translation. She captures these emotions through her bold use of color, textiles, adornment and pop culture linking the past and present. As the daughter of Lebanese immigrants who fled the country’s civil war in 1982, Feda is guided by her family’s journey and her own childhood growing up as a Muslim in the US. She will speak about her work and solidarity at this event.
