Open House

Reciting Women: Alia Bensliman & Khalilah Sabree

Saturday, February 3, 2–5 p.m.


Join the artists Alia Bensliman and Khalilah Sabree, with Juliana Ochs Dweck, chief curator, to celebrate the opening of Reciting Women at Art@Bainbridge. 

Drawing as much on Islamic architectural motifs and Indigenous Amazigh symbols as on personal and spiritual experience, these Trenton-based artists generate new visual vocabularies to grapple with cultural change. Their work layers and questions boundaries between traditional and modern imagery, between photography and painting, to narrate personal journeys and propose new possibilities for human connection.
