We invite you to come and view our current exhibitionMore Than Your Eyes Can See: Contemporary Photography from the Arab World
, which features the work of 15 photographers from the Arab world and its diaspora exploring a wide range of topics from the devastating effects of climate change to notions of public space, identity and LGBT communities. Using genres that include photojournalism and fine art photography, the artists provide highly personal reflections on the daily lived experiences of individuals in the Middle East today.
The exhibition is curated by Laila Abdul Hadi Jadallah and organized in partnership with Tribe
