About

This exhibition of five contemporary artists presents their work in conversation with pieces selected from the Whitworth’s art collection.

Investigating key questions around in/exclusion in art spaces and public collections, this group exhibition showcases the important and often overlooked contribution of Muslim women to culture and the arts in contemporary Britain.

Combining graphic design, textiles, painting and photography, Beyond Faith will be shown in the Collection Centre and as part of an artist intervention in Four Corners of One Cloth: Textiles from the Islamic World. Gallery One. It marks the culmination of a major Arts and Humanities Research Council Project on the roles and experiences of Muslim women in the UK Cultural Industries led by Dr Saskia Warren, University of Manchester.
