    How can we understand a region as diverse and far-ranging as the Middle East? Curators Taraneh Hemami and Anuradha Vikram pose this question to a selection of Bay Area artists with roots in the region and beyond, working in all visual arts media. Topics of particular concern include how to represent religious, ethnic and cultural diversity within an area of the world too often homogenized in discussions of current events; the roles and status of women and queer or transgendered persons within traditional cultures; and the changes to self-identification that immigration engenders.

    Participating Artists: Taha Belal, Youmna Chlala, Ali Dadgar, Dina Danish, Osama Dawood, Ala Ebtekar, Amir Esfehani, Mitra Fabian, Hiba Kalachi, Bessma Khalaf, Taraneh Hemami, Nazanin Shenasa, Hadi Tabatabai, Taravat Talepasand, Nomi Talisman, Shadi Yousefian.
