Description

Works of Arab artists have been gaining progressively more recognition in recent decades, promoting the field of Arab art defined by its geographic and cultural identity. Panelists will engage in conversation about developments in the art scene of the MENA region and explore shifting trends, while reflecting on generational differences. They will discuss the relationship between Arab and global art scenes, and what it means to be an Arab artist today.
