Yasmeen Nematt Alla's exhibition at Grebel Gallery

Wednesday, November 3, 2021

Art gallery installation of 10 orange blankets hung on single nails on gallery walls Fine Arts Alumna Yasmeen Nematt Alla's work Not Traumatic Enough for a Shock Blanket is currently on exhibit at Grebel Gallery.  The work is based around the question, “Where do we go to talk about our everyday traumatic experiences that we do not believe are worthy of sharing?”  The exhibition runs from September 7, 2021 to March 7, 2022.

In collaboration with Yasmeen, the Kindred Credit Union Centre for Peace Advancement has also launched an interactive project for students, staff and faculty at the University of Waterloo called If Trauma Could Echo”.  This project allows participants to reflect on their adversities and share it with Yasmeen Nematt Alla. As a token of gratitude for sharing your experiences, she will send participants small shock blankets with abstract excerpts from their stories to hold and reflect on what they’ve shared.  To participate, go to the “If Trauma Could Echo” webpage and fill out the webform on the website. The project continues until December 20, 2021.
