Temporary Exhibitions, Jaffe, Hall, Friends, and Cheatham Galleries
This exhibition presents new work by seven important contemporary artists with an intimate knowledge both of a so-called "East" (the Middle East and North Africa) from whence they come and a "West" (Europe and America) where they primarily live and work. Beyond simply disrupting Western stereotypes and discourses, they address themselves to the issues raised by competing cultural allegiances. The exhibition features the work of Jananne Al-Ani, Ghada Amer, Mona Hatoum, Y. Z. Kami, Walid Raad, Michal Rovner, and Shahzia Sikander. A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition.
