In times of crisis, how is art expressed as a form of representation, protest, and change? Join the Columbia Arab Alumni Association for an expert panel on Art and Representation Amid Crisis on Sunday, November 15th at 3 p.m. ET. Rola Khayyat, Lebanese interdisciplinary artist and curator based in Brooklyn, NY will lead a discussion with globally-acclaimed Tunisian calligraphy street artist eL Seed, Egyptian research-based designer Basma Hamdy, and Lebanese artist Selim Mawad, on their art during the Arab Uprisings and amid current political crises. Tune in as we ponder: How is art created in concurrence with, in reaction to, and in participation with times of political and social upheaval? What is the significance of “street art” in reclaiming space and power during political upheaval? All are welcome to join the webinar.
