"The fourteen artists of In Plain Sight strive to tell stories untold, to speak for voices that have been undervalued or deliberately silenced, to reveal aspects of our public narratives that have been obfuscated, and to reimagine histories for the future. Join Senior Curator Shamim M. Momin for a tour of In Plain Sight. Momin will provide an overview of the themes and intentions behind the exhibition, share insights into its unique layout and spatial arrangements, and highlight the aesthetic and cultural contexts that inform the artists’ work.   Shamim M. Momin is the Senior Curator at the Henry Art Gallery. Prior to joining the Henry in 2018, she was director, curator, and co-founder of LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division), a nonprofit public art organization committed to curating site- and situation-specific contemporary art projects, in Los Angeles and beyond. Previously, Momin served for more than ten years at the Whitney Museum of American Art, co-curating the 2004 and 2008 Whitney Biennials and overseeing the Contemporary Projects series. In her role as Branch Director at Altria, the Whitney’s midtown space, she commissioned more than 50 contemporary projects. In Plain Sight is Shamim’s first large-scale exhibition curated at the Henry."
