Here and Elsewhere

Qalandia by Wafa Hourani
"The exhibition brings together more than forty-five artists from over fifteen countries, many of whom live and work internationally. In keeping with the New Museum’s dedication to showcasing the most engaging new art from around the globe, 'Here and Elsewhere' is the most recent in a series of exhibitions that have introduced urgent questions and new aesthetics to US audiences. ... Combining pivotal and under-recognized figures with younger and midcareer artists, 'Here and Elsewhere' works against the notion of the Arab world as a homogenous or cohesive entity. Through the original and individualized practices of a multigenerational constellation of artists, the exhibition highlights works that often have conceptual or aesthetic references to the Arab world, yet also extend well beyond."
