Event Description MoPA presents "Beloved Daughters: Photographs by Fazal Sheikh," a provocative exhibition of over 100 photographs by the artist and activist, Fazal Sheikh. The exhibition unites two projects focused on the women in India. The first, "Moksha," explores the lives of dispossessed widows cast out by their families, denying them legal, economic, and human rights. The second, "Ladli," examines the perils faced by girls and young women in a changing, modern India, that include domestic slavery, forced prostitution, and murder. Sheikh pairs intense camera portraits with testimony from his subjects.

ABOUT ELIZABETH TURK Embracing a classical medium, Turk painstakingly transforms solid 400-pound blocks of Sivec and Carrara marble into improbable shapes. Her fascination with patterns results in large, intricately latticed collars and ribbons of undulating waves, evoking both man-made and organic forms: starched lace, Elizabethan ruffs, pinwheels, flowers, even the double helix of DNA. A testament to Turk’s remarkable technical ability, the marble works are a study in contrasts – solid material appears weightless, liquid, buoyant, illustrating the tension between both the inherent strength of the stone and its fragility. The artist was raised in Orange County and completed her master’s degree in sculpture at the Rhinehart School of Sculpture at the Maryland Institute. Though she currently works primarily with marble, she has mastered a variety of media since the late 1980s, molding forms in wax and clay; casting objects in bronze and iron; working with fragile materials such as glass and porcelain; and creating installations using video and photography. Turk’s work has been exhibited at solo shows at Bandini Art, Culver City, Calif.; Hirschl & Adler Modern, New York; Mint Museum of Art, Charlotte, NC; and Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum, Santa Barbara, Calif. Group exhibitions have included the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, D.C.; Ben Maltz Gallery at the Otis College of Art and Design, Los Angeles; Riverside Art Museum, Riverside, Calif.; American Institute of Architecture, New York; and the Japan Bank Building, Hiroshima, Japan. Turk’s pieces are featured in such collections as the Corcoran Gallery of Art and the National Museum for Women in the Arts, both in Washington, D.C., as well as the Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery at Scripps College in Claremont, Calif. She is the recipient of several prestigious awards and residency programs, including the L’Oreal Art and Science Prize in 2001 for a collaboration with Kirara Kiwacha in Japan, along with the Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant, the New York City Art Commission Award for Excellence in Design and the J.M. Kohler residency program in 2000. Turk is in-studio at Lux through October 3. Her exhibit, as well as the marble sculpture for her “Collar” series that she is working on during her residency, will be on view at Lux through October 31.
