Sweeping Tide: Notes Toward Decolonial Feminisms, 2024

Sweeping Tide: Notes Toward Decolonial Feminisms brings together the works of Tamara Al-Mashouk, Syowia Kyambi, and Sepideh Rahaa. Drawing on transnational traditions of women of colour critique of feminist universalism, particularly the scholarship of María Lugones, the exhibition grapples with questions of violent colonial histories, turbulent political and social presents, and imagining futures of solidarity, community, and resistance. Divided in two parts, the exhibition critically examines issues of patriarchy, migration, and race through diverse geo-political positionalities that complicate local and global relationships.
