Lead Artist: Waleed Abdulhamid

Designed by Sabrine S. Hakam

Moderated by Carolina Leite

Artist: Waleed Abdulhamid

Theme: Motherland

In this month’s Culture Cloths, we are exploring the theme of pan-africanism through cloths. The textiles of North, East, West Africa, Central, and South Africa showcase the rich diversity and cultural heritage of the continent, serving as symbols of identity, tradition, and creativity for generations. Join us as we celebrate the enduring legacy of African heritage and honor its deep contributions to the fabric of humanity. Caroline Leite will facilitate a conversation with Waleed Abdulhamid, exploring this exhibit by Sabrine S Hakam.
