Curated by Maya El Khalil, the exhibit features twelve artists from the Middle East and South Asia who use multimedia, installation, photography, drawing and painting, to explore ways to live in harmony with the planet by reconnecting with past cultural histories, remembering extinct plant species, and imagining alternative ways for humankind to attune to nature.
