I AM is a peacebuilding exhibition involving 31 of the Middle East's premier contemporary women artists that promotes and celebrates the many accomplishments of Middle Eastern women in shaping our world into a peaceful and harmonious one.


CARAVAN's I AM exhibition comes to St. Martin-in-the-Fields from 2 July – 20 August having premiered on 3 May 2017 at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts in Amman under the Patronage of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah.

I AM is a peacebuilding exhibition from CARAVAN that showcases the insights and experiences of Middle Eastern women as they confront issues of culture, religion and social reality in a rapidly changing world both in the Middle East and West.

Designed to address stereotypes and challenge misconceptions of the "other”, the I AM exhibition is a visual celebration of the crucial role that Middle Eastern women play as guardians of peace, celebrating their strengths and rich and diverse contributions in the enduring global quest for a more harmonious and peaceful future. The exhibition highlights what women contribute toward healing our world, because of their inherent connection to the sanctity of life, and their ability to nurture and protect it, thereby inspiring a legacy of harmony.

Guest curated  by Janet Rady, a specialist in Middle Eastern contemporary art, the exhibition features 31 acclaimed women artists of Middle Eastern heritage from 12 countries.
