Description

Overview

Torn from her family, her paintings, and her beloved Calcutta after the partition of India, artist Surayia Rahman finds a new life in Bangladesh teaching impoverished mothers to embroider her storytelling designs.

An inspirational example of the power of art and the impact of empowering women and girls around the world, Threads takes us on an intimate journey into the heart of an artist and celebrates an unconventional path to dignity and independence.

As an introduction to the film, SLOMA curator Dr. Ruta Saliklis will discuss contemporary textiles and an exhibition of weavings in the Museum’s Gray Wing.
