In her most recent work, Zughaib creates a series of paintings inspired by the narrative paintings of Jacob Lawrence’s Migration series from 1940-1941, a visual record of the great migration of African Americans from the south to the north.
Zughaib’s “Syrian Migration Series” begins with the initial uprisings of the “Arab Spring” and its aftermath, the Syrian civil war and subsequent displacement of millions of people and a following refugee crisis that continues to affect the Arab world, Europe and the United States.
Opening Reception with the artist at Gallery Al Quds Friday January 25, 6:00—8:00 p.m.
Exhibition Dates: January 25– February 28, 2019
