Opening reception: Saturday - 16 May, 2015 (7:00pm - 9:00pm)
Exhibition dates: 17/5/2015 - 4/6/2015
Location: Contemporary Art Platform - Exhibition Space
Abolish 153 is pleased to present a group exhibition at the Contemporary Art Platform on 16 May 2015, marking ten years since women obtained their political rights in Kuwait. The exhibition will feature works in various media by local and regional artists to raise awareness and funding for our campaign, Abolish 153. This campaign is committed to abolishing article 153 of Kuwait's penal code that sanctifies the murder of female kin, and treats it as a misdemeanor punishable by a maximum sentence of 3 years or 3000 rupees fine.Many Kuwaitis are not aware of this law’s existence, it is harmful to women and girls as it sanctifies their murder, and violates the constitution, Islamic Sharia and CEDAW, which Kuwait ratified in 1996.

The exhibition will include works by 17 artists. It will feature paintings by Kuwaiti artists Alaa Al-Haddad, Amani Althuwaini, Amira Behbehani, Ibrahim Alatiya, Khadija Al-Bahaweed, Majedah Al-Sabah, Mohammed Ramadan, Mohammed Sarkouh, Mohammad Qambar, Shaimaa Ashkanani, Suhaila Al-Najdi and Thuraya Al-Baqsami. It will also feature photography by Maryam Mesri and Nasser Al-Ghanim. Iranian artists Salar Ahmadian and Behnaz Ghasemi have contributed to this exhibition, along with Lebanese artist Katya Traboulsi. Their works highlight women and their role in society. Some works celebrate the family and womanhood. Some emphasize the importance of men women being equal members in society. Others focus on direct and indirect forms of gender violence, raising awareness to the legislation that encourages it.

Al Mubarakiya Souq of Kuwait City

Ayer estuvimos cenando en el Souq y como por la mañana nos dimos una vueltilla por la zona pués ahora lo miro con mejores ojos. Fuimos a cenar con Lola y Joaquín y familia ( en las fotos de mi segunda visita a la Gran Mezquita tenéis imagenes de ellos) Y pude sacar unas fotos, no muchas ya que no les gusta y menos si van vestidos de árabes. Pero entre alguna que robé disimuladamente y otras que me dieron permiso puedo mostraros un poquito mas del SOUQ de KUWAIT CITY.

Yesterday we went to taken dinner to the souq in Kuwait City with our neighbours. I couldnt take much good photographs because they dont like it much. So my appologise for the bad quality in someones. I can show you now a little bit more of the KUWAIT CITY SOUQ.
