Artist Rayyane Tabet and curators Kim Benzel and Clare Davies will discuss the exhibition Rayyane Tabet/Alien Property, a project that engages with the story of the ninth-century B.C. stone reliefs excavated in the early twentieth century at Tell Halaf, Syria and their subsequent destruction, loss, or dispersal to museum collections around the world. Examining the circuitous journey four of these reliefs took to arrive at The Met under the aegis of the World War II–era Alien Property Custodian Act, the presentation also highlights the very personal connection of the reliefs to contemporary artist Rayyane Tabet.
This event came about as the result of a research project by undergraduate student Yue Yue Teng ’22.
Cosponsored by the Watson Institute and the Center for Middle East Studies.
