Description

THE MEMORY OF HOPE – Aida Muluneh 
CLOSING RECEPTION

Through her bold, striking images, photographer Aïda Muluneh asks provocative questions about the life that we live as people, as nations, and as beings. Her carefully composed photographs read as poems, using symbols and painted figures to tell stories of the past, present, and future.

Work from two recent series will be included: The World is 9 and The Memory of Hope. Born in Ethiopia in 1974, Aïda Muluneh grew up in Ethiopia, Yemen, England, and Canada. She holds a degree in film from Howard University.

In addition to her work as an exhibiting artist, Muluneh continues her work as a photojournalist and commercial photographer; her work can be found in several international publications.
