Saudi women’s stories take wing at the Aga Khan Museum, Toronto

This summer, Saudi-Arabia-born artist Manal AlDowayan is back at the Museum with a fuller version of Suspended Together – (Standing Dove, Eating Dove), the pair of porcelain birds that were visitor favourites. This summer’s installation, Suspended Together, which floats above the courtyard café in the Museum’s atrium until October, is a flock of 30 birds representing Manal alDowayan response to Saudi Arabia’s travel restrictions.
