Arab Art and Education Initiatives in the United States

Initiative Brings Arab Art to New York Museums

The most extensive exhibition will take place at the Brooklyn Museum. Their show, “Syria, Then and Now: Stories from Refugees a Century Apart,” will run from Oct. 13 through Jan. 13, and present artifacts from medieval Raqqa alongside works by contemporary artists in response to the current refugee crisis. The artists presented include Mohamad Hafez, who creates tiny, war-torn urban edifices; and Issam Kourbaj, who created an installation of a scaled-down view of refugee camp in 2015.
