A spokesperson describes the event as follows:

“…The Foreign in Us is Kahraman’s first solo exhibition in Texas and includes major works informed by the artist’s Iraqi-Kurdish heritage and experience as a refugee while highlighting her research-driven practice….In the artist’s unique compositions, questions inspired by immunology and microbiology, as well as history, are approached through the lens of the othered body, often represented in contortionist postures as a means to interrogate normative gender constructions and racial stereotypes that can adversely affect migrant groups. This conceptual focus and innovative practice are presented through a selection of more than forty paintings and drawings from public and private collections in the United States and abroad…”
