Ethiopian artist Aida Muluneh is showing an art exhibition in New York.
The exhibition is entitled “The world is 9 ” – an expression Aida got from her grandmother.
Aida Muluneh’s first solo exhibition consists of a selection of images from a brand new series of photographic works in which Muluneh questions life, love, history, and whether we can live in this world with full contentment. “I am not seeking answers but asking provocative questions about the life that we live – as people, as nations, as beings.” The title comes from an expression that
Aida’s grandmother had repeated.
”over the past nine years, an expression from my grandmother stuck in my mind. She would say “The world is 9″. Its never perfect, never complete.” Aida Says
Aida Muluneh’s “The world is 9” David Krut Projects exhibition will be shown march 3rd – April 16, 2016 at 526 West 26th Street New York
