Dear Ayeeyo (Opening Reception)

May 4, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Exhibition Dates: May 3 – June 15, 2018

Opening Reception: Friday, May 4, 2018, 2nd floor

Location: 1st & 2nd Floor Galleries

In Dear Ayeeyo, Yasin Osman shares scenes of everyday life within the villages of Somalia. This exhibition features large-scale portraits and snapshots that offer glimpses into the lives of the Somali people during a time fraught with humanitarian crisis and severe drought. Through fostering trust and camaraderie with his subject, Osman achieves intimate portraits that contest the portrayal of Somalia in the popular media.

The child of Somali parents, Osman returned to his ancestral lands in search for an emotional connection. This body of work, compiled together for the first time, showcases his journey home as an outsider, examining this foreign land. Dear Ayeeyo is intended as a tribute to Osman’s grandmother.
