Somewhere Elsewhere is an art exhibition that provides a rare opportunity in the Bay Area to view contemporary art production by artists of Arab and Iranian heritage who are living in the United States. This exhibition brings awareness of the impact of stereotypes in general, and vilification of Arabs and Muslims in particular. Misrepresentations are collective definitions imposed by one group of people onto another group of people along religious, cultural or ethnic lines. The stereotyping of Muslims and Arabs has increased significantly after September 11th, yet it is a practice that goes back particularly to the Crusades of the Middle Ages. Arab and Muslim stereotyping is flooding all public arenas, from television and cinema to newspapers and the fine arts. Misrepresentation creates dissonance and conflict within diverse groups in a community and suppresses and impedes the visibility of the creative spirit.


Sponsors: San Francisco Arab Cultural & Community Center (ACCC), The Zellerbach Family Foundation, Center for Middle Eastern Studies at University of California-Berkeley, Arab Film Festival, M Square Software Services, San Jose State University, KPFA - Pacifica Radio 94.1FM, Cultural and Visual Arts Resource/ICWA, and True Identity.
