Maïmouna Guerresi’s “Aisha in Wonderland” is currently on view at projects+gallery
Italian-Senegalese artist Maïmouna Guerresi has a solo show of new work at our affiliate art space projects+gallery. The exhibit, which will remain on view through July 29, is produced in collaboration with Mariane Ibrahim Gallery in Seattle.
The exhibit is an allegorical reinterpretation of “Alice in Wonderland” centered around a spiritually strong woman who, through her firm sense of self, is able to dispel misconceptions associated with Islam.
Senior Director Bridget Melloy discussed the show and its significance with St. Louis Magazine and Alive Magazine. It is the third show organized by BBP and PPG this year — along with A Queen Within and Seeing Other People — that foregrounds female experiences and narratives.
