Conversation: Artists on the Refugee Crisis
Thursday, October 18, 2018
Martha A. and Robert S. Rubin Pavilion, 1st Floor
Artists Ginane Makki Bacho, Issam Kourbaj, and Mohamad Hafez discuss the special exhibition Syria, Then and Now: Stories from Refugees a Century Apart, where their works are on view alongside medieval ceramics from our collection. These three artists of Syrian and Lebanese descent—based in Beirut; Cambridge, U.K.; and New Haven, CT, respectively—explore both the violence and displacement of the refugee crisis and the resilience of diasporic communities. Followed by a Q&A on the intersections of art and the refugee crisis. Presented in conjunction with the Arab Art & Education Initiative.
