The panel discussion Muslim American Artists: Reshaping the Narrative was held on March 9, 2015 as part of Silk Road Rising’s ongoing commitment to reclaiming, dissecting, and subverting representation. We assembled a panel of five outstanding Chicago-based artists to discuss their work and where it fits against the broader backdrop of American culture, Muslim identity, world events, and the communities from which they hail.
