Joint art exhibition showcasing works created by Niki Lopez and Khaulah Naima Nuruddin.

As a Matter of FACT , is an exhibition that amplifies the creative expressions of two women who refuse to be confined by societal norms. Through their powerful works, these artists challenge the status quo, fostering a sense of community and understanding. Embark on a journey that transcends boundaries, delving into themes of social justice, Afrocentric spirituality, self-exploration, and the transformative power of art.

The Fact is that all individuals are relevant. The Fact is that groups of people are relevant. As a matter of Fact, women are at the center of paving fruitful paths for mankind to survive the atrocities of humanity in order to promote massive change for communal health and well-being. The artworks of Lopez and Nuruddin unveil the self, serving as a mirror, reflecting the diverse facets of the individual, and dismantling the limitations imposed by society. Through their bold use of various visual art media, the artists invite viewers to examine their own identities, encouraging them to embrace their unique stories and reclaim their relevance in a world that often dismisses their voices. With profound visual narratives, they ignite conversations, challenge perspectives, and inspire viewers to actively engage in the pursuit of equality and liberation for all marginalized communities, tapping into the sacred spaces within themselves and fostering a deeper connection with the world around them.
