The 28th paragraph of , verses 10-13, reads: Jacob left Beersheba and set out for Harran. When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set. Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep. He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it. There above it stood the Lord […]. Lots of artists, during the course of art... [more]

Change has been bubbling to the surface across the Arab region, and as it passes the boiling point, it’s unclear what to do with so much hot water. What direction will the post-revolution(s) take? Who will determine the shape of things to come, and how? Disillusionment with politics has perhaps been the driving force behind much of the movement. In the meanwhile, strategies for creating and defining the future are being contemplated and considered and not only are other voices being included... [more]

        As a member of the North African community, Kader Attia (born 1970, France) has spent the past several years examining the tangle of identity conflicts that have contributed to recent difficult events.

I attended on the opening weekend and expected long lines outside the Grand Palais.  Though the exhibit was in its final weekend (later extended) the line for TAG--the graffiti collection of Gallizia--stretched out past the grand entrance and Andy next door was reeling in hundreds.  La Force de l'Art?  Nobody.  Not a single person waiting to see the triennial of French contemporary art.  ORLAN was signing books that day and looked a little forlorn at her table, waiting for people to...
