This first-of-its-kind exhibit in Canada lets you embark on a Middle Eastern journey in the company of 16 Arab, Iranian, and Turkish artists. These artists define themselves and the world according to their own creative representations. They acknowledge the realities of political turmoil and revolution, and how politics frames both trauma and desire, whether individual or collective.
Artists featured are Adel Abidin, Tarek Al-Ghoussein, Nazgol Ansarinia, Kutlug Ataman, Ayman Baalbaki, Ali Banisadr, Taysir Batniji, Mona Hatoum, Susan Hefuna, Raafat Ishak, Y.Z. Kami, Farhad Moshiri, Youssef Nabil, Hamed Sahihi, Mitra Tabrizian, and Parviz Tanavoli.
