Humaira Abid to hold first solo museum exhibition at Bellevue Arts Museum
Bellevue, WA— This fall, Bellevue Arts Museum will present Searching for Home, the first solo museum exhibition for Seattle-based, Pakistan-born artist Humaira Abid. Abid is well known for her bold, symbolically rich, and meticulously realized wood sculptures and miniature paintings. Her work demonstrates a fearless approach to tackling cultural norms, gender roles, and relationships, often with an ironic edge. Searching for Home will premiere never-before seen works by the artist, created following months of research and interviews with refugee women who have been resettled in both the Pacific Northwest and Pakistan from nations including Somalia, Syria, and Afghanistan.
