"inside/outside & other oxymorons" [sic] is a new exhibition that explores the work of three multicultural artists-Sama Alshaibi, Vahé Berberian and Adnan Charara-whose lives of migration and experiences with war, displacement and political instability have given them a unique perspective on identity, culture and society. Their work is created and inspired from the space of the in-between; from the inside and outside of multiple cultures and perspectives. Using diverse mediums, these artists' works are an expression of their respective journeys. The new Inside/Outside Gallery at Levantine Cultural Center will present more than 30 of their works from June 20-July 31, 2009, with an opening reception on June 20, 6-10 pm, and other art salons to follow. This is the first time any of these works will have been exhibited in Los Angeles. Read artists' bios.

Addressing a void in the American art world, Inside/Outside Gallery is the first gallery in the United States to specialize in presenting contemporary Arab/Middle Eastern artists. Inside/Outside seeks to challenge Orientalist stereotypes by providing the general public with both a physical and online location to view/appreciate art that is representative of the diversity and evolving cultural identity of the Arab/Muslim world and its growing diaspora.

"inside/outside & other oxymorons" is curated by Deeba Haider and presented by Levantine Cultural Center at the Inside/Outside Gallery, 5998 W. Pico Blvd., Los Angeles CA 90035. 310.657.5511.Date/Time:  Jun 20 2009 6:00pm - 10:00pm Price:  Free to the public.
