Make Room For Me

  • Little Berlin 2430 Coral Street, 19125 (map)

We at Little Berlin, invite you to experience Make Room For Me, curated by Little Berlin member, Sarah Trad.

Make Room For Me is an exhibition showcasing the work of femme and queer-identifying artists with origins in the Middle and Near East. Consisting of all new media works, each artist manipulates space or the body, including its parts, routines, movements, and absence, as a form of expressing identity and heritage. Their manipulation of space and form in their practice serves as a radical act to carve out representation for a subject position commonly misunderstood and underrepresented.

Featured artists:

Yasmina Hilal
Sholeh Asgary
Alia Hijaab
Noorann Matties
Nishat Hossain
Kris Rumman
Minoosh Zomorodinia
Donia Jarrar
Mette Loulou von Kohl

The Opening Reception will take place on June 8th from 6-9pm, including a performance by Mette Loulou von Kohl at 7pm.

There will also be a casual Artist Talk and lunch, including several Middle Eastern dishes on June 9th at 1pm at Little Berlin.

Make Room For Me will also kick off Little Berlin’s Outdoor Film Screening Series, starting on June 15th. In honor of the upcoming exhibition, Little Berlin will be showing films throughout June, made by Middle Eastern female filmmakers, including Nadine Labaki, Danielle Arbid, and Ana Lily Amirpour.
