SOMArts Cultural Center: The Third Muslim Opening Reception

January 25 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

SOMArts Cultural Center presents The Third Muslim: Queer and Trans* Muslim Narratives of Resistance and Resilience co-curated by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Yas Ahmed. The second exhibition in the 2017–2018 season of the SOMArts Curatorial Residency, this group exhibition centers artists whose identities as queer, trans*, gender non-conforming and Muslim have consistently pushed them to the margins of the margins.

The opening reception on January 25 will feature two Bay Area based queer Muslim poets as well as remarks from the curators. In addition, artists from the San Francisco Poster Syndicate will be onsite to create live screen prints for reception attendees to take home.
