HISTORY IS NOT HERE: ART AND THE ARAB IMAGINARY

Curated by Heba Y. Amin and Maymanah Farhat
12 September 2019 - 5 January 2020

 

This exhibition recognizes the so-called Arab world and its diaspora as multiform, made up of 22 countries with distinct histories as well as diverse ethnicities, languages, and religions. Through visual art, book art, installation, and video, the exhibition’s artists engage the “Arab imaginary” as a strategy for examining various social, cultural, and political positions, making connections between contemporary geopolitics and the histories that inform them.
