Event description: 

Why do we know so little about modern art from the Middle East? What does this art tell us about the culture, politics, and society of this fascinating part of the world? Join Yale Greenberg World Fellow, Barjeel Art Foundation Founder and Lecturer Sultan Al Qassemi for a wondrous investigation of the political undertones of iconic artworks of the 20th century in the Arab world. From abstract pieces to calligraffiti this is not to be missed. Hot chocolate and delicious Middle Eastern pastries will be served.

Part of the Council on Middle East Studies “Demystifying the Middle East Series” in partnership with Yale Pathways to Arts and Humanities, Office of New Haven Affairs.

ALL ARE WELCOME – ESPECIALLY Students in grades 8 - 12!
