'I Am Somali'
Minneapolis is home to one of the largest populations of Somali refugees in the United States, so it's only right that the Minneapolis Institute of Art would host this exhibition featuring Somali artists Hassan Nor, Aziz Osman and Ifrah Mansour. Their work spans various media, from drawings and paintings to video, that will be shown alongside traditional objects depicting daily life in Somali as part of a collaboration with the Somali Museum of Minnesota. The show represents different generations from the Somali diaspora: Nor and Osman were born and raised in Somalia and came to the United States in the late 1990s and early 2000s after the outbreak of civil war, and are in their 80s and 60s, respectively. Mansour is in her 30s, was born in Saudi Arabia and raised in Minnesota. (10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tue.-Wed. & Sat.; 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Thu.-Fri.; 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Sun. Ends April 29. Minneapolis Institute of Art, 2400 3rd Av. S., Mpls. Free. 1-888-642-2787, new.artsmia.org)
