We’re excited to let our members know that photographer Rania Matar will be in the gallery on Saturday, June 30, from 2:30–3:30 pm. She will give a brief, informal talk about her images that are currently featured in our Bridging Division exhibition. Born and raised in Lebanon, Rania moved to the U.S. in 1984. Her cross-cultural experience and personal narrative inform her photography.

Rania has received several awards, including a 2018 Guggenheim Fellowship, 2017 Mellon Foundation Grant, 2011 Legacy Award at the Griffin Museum of Photography, and 2011 and 2007 Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Fellowships. In 2008, she was a finalist for the Foster Award at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, with an accompanying solo exhibition.

Her work has been widely exhibited, most recently in solo exhibitions at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art and the Cleveland Museum of Art, but also in group shows at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Carnegie Museum of Art; National Museum of Women in the Arts; Howard Greenberg Gallery; Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris; Sharjah Art Museum; National Portrait Gallery, London, among others. Her images are in the collections of several museums, institutions, and private collections worldwide.
