Through painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, and video, But a Storm Is Blowing from Paradise: Contemporary Art of the Middle East and North Africa presents a spectrum of artistic voices and critical concerns from a rapidly evolving region. Interwoven with questions around the Middle East and North Africa’s colonial histories, the exhibition investigates themes such as movement, migration, architecture, and the process of uncovering hidden ideas or “conceptual contraband.”
Participating artists include: Abbas Akhavan, Kader Attia, Ergin Çavuşoğlu, Ali Cherri, Ori Gersht, Mariam Ghani, Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, Rokni Haerizadeh, Susan Hefuna, Iman Issa, Nadia Kaabi-Linke, Hassan Khan, Mohammed Kazem, Ahmed Mater, Zineb Sedira, and Ala Younis.
