MENA/VICEROY Art Exhibit
Join us for our MENA/VICEROY Art Opening Thursday December 12! We will have delicious food, drinks and art!
Inside/Outside Gallery presents a new group exhibit, “MENA/VICEROY” as in Middle East/North Africa and viceroy, colonial ruler. The exhibit is organized by The Curatorial Practices class under the aegis of artist/professor Micol Hebron at Chapman University’s Department of Art, in conjunction with the Levantine Cultural Center. MENA/VICEROY opens Dec. 12, 6-10 pm with a reception for the artists and runs through January 8, 2014. The exhibition aims to highlight dialogue from cultural producers of our time, addressing political and social issues pertinent to the Middle East today. Gallery hours 10 am-6 pm daily and evenings during regularly scheduled events.
MENA/VICEROY surveys contemporary Arab/Levantine/Middle East-related artists in our post-colonial and often polarized world of barriers. The artwork presented responds to conflict as a peaceful means of processing trauma, through violence and aggression. Reflected in a range of multimedia artworks, the artists explore individual, sexual and political identities expressing themselves and their cultural heritage inherently present. Featured artists are Wafaa Bilal, Abdul Mazid, Neda Moridpour, Amitis Motevalli, Samira Yamin, [P]art Collective.
