IAS faculty member Anida Yoeu Ali, along with her media collaborative Studio Revolt, have two works: "Hijabs & Hoodies" and "The Red Chador" featured in the new online exhibition "Salaam: I Come In Peace" launched by the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center. The digitally curated exhibition includes four works from artists who address experiences of Muslims in America. These works offer deeper insight and understanding of the greater Muslim American community. The works were originally exhibited on Memorial Day Weekend 2016 as part of the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center’s presentation of CrossLines: A Culture Lab on Intersectionality at the Smithsonian Arts & Industries Building, the historic former site of the U.S. National Museum. The culture lab consisted of original works of art that investigate the complexities of today's American identities. Asian Pacific Americans encompass a wide range of ethnicities, religions, points of origin and experiences. Among these are distinct Muslim communities that compose a rich fabric of faith, practice and relationships.
