The MEI Art Gallery invites you to the Friday, November 1 opening of Perpetual Identities, a pop-up show of works by Lebanese artist Katya Traboulsi on exhibit 11/1-11/22. Embedded in MEI’s current exhibition, Arabicity/Ourouba, Traboulsi’s series consists of hand-crafted replicas of bombshells used in the Lebanese civil war, each adorned with the designs and iconography associated with the artistic traditions of 21 featured countries. The sculpted, ornamented forms transform weapons of war into objects of beauty, representing the power of art to transcend violence and destruction. Traboulsi will speak about her work at 6:45pm in conversation with Lyne Sneige, director of MEI’s Arts & Culture Center.
