Museum Art Film: “The Third One” by Rahraw Omarzad
WHEN: May 5-August 12, 2012, 9-4 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, 9-4 p.m. Thursday and 12-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
WHAT: description from the Museum of Art and Archaeology- This film sensitively explores through art one of the principle debates for and about Muslim women: the wearing of the burqa, the outer garment that overs the whole face and body. Through the creation of an opening in black fabric to reveal a woman dressed in a burqa, the film carefully inquires into the culture of veiling and the world behind the veil. Using the realm of video, the artist considers issues related to body, gender, religion, and society through this thoughtful film. The film also affirms the power art has to help us understand complex cultural customs on a deeper level, thus opening the way for logical solutions.
WHERE? Museum of Art and Archaeology located in Pickard Hall at the University of Missouri
