Docent Tour of Searching for Home

August 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Join Docent Kirsten Ervin for a guided tour of the exhibition Searching for Home, featuring the artwork of Seattle-based, Pakistan-born artist Humaira Abid. The beauty and mastery of Humaira’s to-scale woodcarvings of seemingly benign objects belie the upheaval, and instability in society, especially that to which women are subject.

Searching for Home presents a human-scaled look at the worldwide refugee crisis focusing on the plight of women and girls, who make up a disproportionate percentage of the millions who have fled their home countries as a result of political conflict and strife. The works in Searching for Home demonstrate the artist’s ability to tread a narrow line between evocative (and often provocative) content and mastery in a material discipline.

Tours will be offered the Second Saturday of each month at 11 am (timed tickets are required): May 8, June 12, July 10. The tour on August 14 will be at noon. Be sure to select the correct date and time slot when reserving your ticket.
