KHAMSA – AGGREGATE SPACE GALLERY

September 2 @ 1:00 pm - October 15 @ 5:00 pm

Khamsa, the Arabic word for “five,” is a multimedia art exhibition showcasing twenty Black, Muslim, Immigrant, and Refugee visual artists and musicians traversing the five stages of grief. Khamsa will immerse participants within the heart and mind of the project through a musical and visual journey of the five stages of grief. The exhibition will be paired with a hip hop album release with music by the featured music artists.

Khamsa aims to address the different forms and contexts of grief, weaving both personal and universal experiences of loss. From the personal pain of losing a loved one, to the toll of Islamophobia and prejudice, Khamsa will draw in each and every one of us while bringing the stories and experiences of Black, Muslim, Immigrant, and Refugee artists to the forefront. Khamsa is a project to find harmony in our shared stories, bridging differences in cultures, beliefs, and history.

This project is a collaboration between Guled Muse, GAMA: Gathering All Muslim Artists, and ARTogether, and is made possible with support from Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art’s Building Bridges Program.
