Searching for Home is Humaira Abid’s first solo museum exhibition in the United States. Abid is known for her bold, symbolically rich, and precisely realized wood sculptures and miniature paintings. Her work is at turns humorous and ironic, while her themes are timeless. Abid tackles cultural norms, gender roles, and relationships in both her native Pakistan and adopted home of the United States. Searching for Home is a site-specific installation featuring personal narratives, stories, and portraits of refugees in the Pacific Northwest, and socio-cultural themes of immigration, women, and families.
