Creative Dissent lives on

reception photo 5This week our exhibition, “Creative Dissent: Arts of the Arab World Uprisings,” is being de-installed.  But the exhibition will live on as it travels throughout the United States in 2014 and 2015.

During its run at the Arab American National Museum, the local, national, and international media have praised the exhibition.  Following are some highlights…

“… poetic rhythm weaves itself through the Creative Dissent exhibit …. slogans join photographs of key moments during the uprisings, and stand next to carefully crafted images that take aim at leaders accused of oppression.”

Kane Farabaugh, Voice of America, February 10, 2014 http://www.voanews.com/content/arab-american-museum-shows-arab-spring-protest-art/1848680.html

 

“It makes me hope that the Arab American National Museum will continue to lead this conversation—to provide the space for scholars and artists to debate and document the uprisings.”

Jonathan Guyer, senior editor, Cairo Review of Global Affairs, February 5, 2014  http://www.aucegypt.edu/GAPP/CairoReview/Pages/articleDetails.aspx?aid=506

 

“Creative Dissent: Arts of the Arab World Uprisings is a breathtaking tapestry and one of the finest examples of a multimedia exhibit we’ve ever seen … a much more insightful study of current history than the sound bites offered up by the western media.”

Robert del Valle, Columnist, Real Detroit Weekly, December 18, 2013  http://www.realdetroitweekly.com/ArtStageampCanvas/archives/2013/12/18/stage-and-canvas

“… an effective reminder of the power of images to help change the world in real time.”

Mark Stryker, Art Critic Detroit Free Press, December 23, 2013 http://www.freep.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2013312230090
