The Minnesota Museum of American Art
Henrietta Schmoll Rauenhorst Court // October 3, 2019 – February 23, 2020
Building on her longtime interest in mining lost histories, Sherin Guirguis, an Egypt-born, L.A.-based artist, will fill the museum’s two-story Rauenhorst Court with an installation of hand-cut works on paper and sculpture, inspired by a largely forgotten writer and leader of the Egyptian feminist movement, Doria Shafik (1908-1975). These new works merge several broad themes and interests evident in Guirguis’s body of work, including architectural design, craft traditions, language, and poetry.
