Beyond the Veil, a new women exhibition at the Hotel Saturnia & International
On May 9th 2019 at 5pm we open the exhibition "Beyond the Veil" at the Hotel Saturnia & International.
The exhibition "Beyond the veil" portrays art on veils and scarves, symbolizing characteristic customs and cultural motifs that represent the background of each artist. The covering of the body by women and the customs that are connected to it, are a representative and controversial factor in formal traditions and religions. The initiative for this show came as a result of a conversation with young women leaders from the Arab world who met in Jordan during the "YaLa" Young Leaders conference for young Middle Eastern journalists.
The aim of the "Beyond the Veil" exhibition is to use the art veil as a symbol of equality, freedom and mutual respect for all cultural identities.
Beyond the Veil is an international on-going art with the participation of 100 women from five continents and includes visual artists, authors, poets and social activists.
You can visit the exhibition "Beyond the Veil" until June 30th 2019.
