ARAB DOLLS AT THE ARMORY SHOW
Lebanese designer Carlo Massoud’s provocative installation at The Armory Show in New York opens today. Titled “Arab Dolls Maya, Zeina, Racha and Yara,” 60 dolls, rising from the ground in rows, challenge traditional assumptions of veiled women that dominate the West. Be sure to stop by – but go prepared to debate your own understanding of the veil’s significance in the Arab World. Runs until March 8.
