> DESCRIPTION

A unique group show of new and recent contemporary art that explores and rethinks modern Arab identity. Spanning an array of techniques including installation, video, photography and sculpture, the 11 artists in the exhibition collectively illustrate fragments of the distorted imagination that often preoccupies the Arab world, uncovering the contrasts of existence in a disputed political region. But instead of conforming, they approach the various masks each is expected to wear with a sense of humour: making reference to the duplicitous performances of their everyday life.
