Revealing Truths: Muslim Women Artists

In 2003, Daisy Khan (ASMA) worked with Ayse Turgut, an independent curator to develop an exhibit, Revealing Truths: Muslim Women Artists. Revealing Truths was a month long art exhibition bringing together the work of Muslim women artists: Huda TotonjiSalma Arastu, Salima RaouiMuhammadi Zuhal KaramanliHeba Amin.

The aim of the show was to increase public awareness about the work of contemporary Muslim artists, while at the same time challenge the negative stereotypes of Muslim women perpetuated by the media. The featured works included paintings, mixed media and calligraphy.  A Classical style Islamic painting demonstration was given by Muhammadi Zuhal Karamanli in conjunction with the exhibit.  The event was attended by 400 members of the General Public.
