In Between Places: Making Contemporary Art in the Middle East

5:30pm to 7:00pm

Location: 

Menschel Hall, Lower Level, Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy St

In the Annual Henri Zerner Lecture, Glenn D. Lowry, director of New York’s Museum of Modern Art, uses the idea of “in between-ness” as a social, political, and geographical metaphor to suggest how many artists from the Middle East, including Bouchra Khalili, Oraib Toukan, Wael Shawky, Walid Raad, and Rania Stephan, among others, have developed strategies to make art that is at once rooted in local concerns and engaged with universal issues. Lowry argues that the Middle East is not an isolated and foreign place but is a case study for how we locate ourselves in time and space in a rapidly changing world, one where social and cultural mores are in flux.
