Students at the Faculty of Kinesiology are invited to a trip to the Royal Ontario Museum to view the exhibition Being and Belonging: Contemporary Women Artists from the Islamic World and Beyond.

Being and Belonging: Contemporary Women Artists from the Islamic World and Beyond is a bold exhibition exploring the defining issues of our time from the perspective of 25 women artists from or connected to the broader Islamic world spanning across West Africa to Southeast Asia or living in diaspora. Deftly interrogating themes of identity, power, sexuality, and home, this exhibition resists simple stereotypes with outstanding artworks from both emerging and well-established artists.
