Title The National: Arts and Culture Section Degree of recognition International Media name/outlet The National Media type Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 17/06/19 Description The epithet cuts through the gallery space in Manchester where Ullah is hanging her contribution to a fascinating group exhibition. But her reflections on identity and memory are a key part of Beyond Faith: Muslim Women Artists Today.
It’s long overdue survey of five contemporary artists, who practise or have trained in the north-west of England; none are household names in the art world.
