The Manhattanville College event for Saturday has unfortunately and very suddenly been cancelled. But, in other news, a new editorial by Rawaa Talass has gone up on Artsy: 10 Middle Eastern Artists to Discover
Although I have been living a few thousand miles from anywhere remotely close to the Middle East for quite a long time now, I am humbled and honored to be included alongside such incredible artists. I mean c'mon, Ahmed Mater? Nicky Nodjoumi! Ruba Salameh! Every one of the artists named on that list makes such powerful and incredible work, and literally any one item from their output would instantly upgrade any museum's collection.
Humbled and thankful.
