Our thematic selections : Women artists

Whether they are dancers, singers, plasticians, painters, filmmakers, or novelists, Arab women are present in all the artistic fields, but they sometimes have to fight against conservatism.

This selection is just a taste of the AWI's rich heritage. It provides you with an overview of the works and invites you to enter the world of some of these female artistes and artists.

You can find out more about these subjects by exploring this portal or by visiting the Institute
