One is in his 80s, another in his 60s, and a third in her 30s. They’re three artists, currently living in the Twin Cities, whose work explores identity, recalls exile, and celebrates resilience. Hassan Nor and Aziz Osman, who migrated to the United States following civil war in their homeland, create drawings and paintings that recapture their original way of life. Ifrah Mansour, born in Saudi Arabia, creates interdisciplinary work, including video, that addresses cultural challenges and stereotypes that are part of her everyday life. The exhibition showcasing their work is the first by Mia on contemporary Somali artists. Curated in collaboration with the Somali Museum of Minnesota, the show also has traditional Somali objects, including a camel bell and a Quran stand.
