The Farhat Art Museum is pleased to extend the invitation of the California, Santa Clara University Museum to everyone around the world to visit the modest de Saisset Museum's exhibition The Veil: Visible and Invisible Spaces. The show brings to the viewer a refreshing and debatable su...bject which has been a point of confrontation between the eastern tradition and the western style of life.

The subject of the veil has become a very hot topic in Europe to the extent of the French Government banning the use of the veil. In our opinion no government has the right to force an individual to wear or not wear the veil. Wearing the veil should be an individuals choice. This choice must be respected by all governments. No Eastern female living within the West should need to feel apologetic for wearing the veil. On the other hand no Western woman should feel the need to wear the veil when visiting the East.

After seeing the works of twenty-three women artists from around the world addressing the subject of the veil with the highest form of self expression, one must leave the show with a few concepts to support his or her final opinion regarding the subject of the veil.
