The Brazilian artist Margot Jabbour looked for inspiration in the lives of women from the middle-east to put together the exhibit "Los Colores del Refugio" (Haven's colors). The show displays 20 pieces which will be on display at the Diário de Ibiza's Cultural Center, in Spain, from November 7th to 24th.
The prejudice against muslim refugees and the concerns brought by the refugee crisis in Europe were constantly present during her research process. Hence, the artist sought to use her work to bring a happier light to the issues.
Margot, whose family was originally from Lebanon, chose to portray the lives of muslim lebanese women from that country's countryside and the lives of Syrian refugees living in Lebanon. The artist intends to break some of the prejudice towards muslim culture and to break the general perception that their lives are full of sorrow. In the show the audience will share some of the women's happiness; and, hopefully, increase their respect towards different cultures.
"Los Colores Del Refugio" opens on November 7th, at 7pm in Spain's Diario de Ibiza.
