Curated by elle Alconcel and Negarra Kudumu, “The Invisible Majority” is the first solo exhibition by image maker Zahra Siddiqui. Known for her vivid portraits, she has explored her creative output and will showcase a new series of mixed media works. This concept of using photography, and interwoven with canvas, textiles, adornments and paint, is a celebration of her diverse roots and heritage.
