The Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis will present the first major solo-exhibition of Montréal-based artist Hajra Waheed. The presentation will include video, sound installation, drawing, and sculpture to explore themes of unity across borders. Waheed will create a new body of work that will expand and continue her interest in ideas of transnational solidarity, as well as present a diverse array of recent work, including sound, installation, painting, works on paper, and poetry. Waheed’s exhibition at CAM will be her most ambitious to date in terms of scale, materiality, medium, and the complexity of issues it addresses. The exhibition is organized for the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis by Wassan Al-Khudhairi.
