Come explore a wide range of art with your peers with a special field trip to the Royal Ontario Museum on November 24, courtesy of KPE's Office of the Registrar and Student Services! There is no cost to attend, but registration is required. Undergraduate and graduate kinesiology students are welcome.
The field trip will focus on the exhibition Being and Belonging: Contemporary Women Artists from the Islamic World and Beyond. This bold exhibition explores the defining issues of our time from the perspective of 25 women artists from or connected to the broader Islamic world spanning across West Africa to Southeast Asia or living in diaspora. Deftly interrogating themes of identity, power, sexuality, and home, this exhibition resists simple stereotypes with outstanding artworks from both emerging and well-established artists.

Among the top 10 cultural institutions in North America, Canada's largest and most comprehensive museum is home to a world-class collection of 13 million artworks, cultural objects and natural history specimens, featured in 40 gallery and exhibition spaces.
