Cantor Arts Center asked Boon to design a new exhibition, She Who Tells A Story, organized by Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. The exhibition “presents the pioneering work of 12 leading women photographers from Iran and the Arab world. The artists explore identity, narrative, representation, and war in daily life, inviting a broader understanding of the Middle East than what Westerners glean through media reports.” We built the exhibition around a modular identity that extended to banners and wayfinding, using Kai Bernau’s Atlas Collection as the typographic voice. The exhibition is open to the public from January 28 – May 4, 2015. Many thanks to Colleen Stockman and Sara Kabot for their trust and collaboration.
