WhenThursday, Feb. 7, 2019, 3:45 – 5:30 p.m.
Description

A public lecture by curator Alma Salem; Q&A post-talk with Dr. Maryam Griffin

In this public lecture, arts curator and cultural advisor Alma Salem will introduce her Syria Sixth Space project, a mobile exhibitions platform providing space to gather and highlight Syrian artists and the transformational power of their work. Salem will also address the following questions: How have Syrian artists taken the lead in embracing the voices of the unheard and freedom of expression in the midst of the conflict in Syria? How are Syrian arts workers overcoming the barriers of time and geography in order to bring people together to shift narratives, to create new cutting-edge arts movements, and to change realities? What is the political and cultural significance of this work in and beyond Syria? While addressing these topics, Salem will present the works of Syrian artists who harness the transformative force of the arts to question, research, engage, recover, imagine, and resist.

Also join us for the Luncheon Meet and Greet hosted by the Diversity Center on Thur Feb 7 from 12-2pm.
