Converging Lines: Tracing the Artistic Lineage of the Arab Diaspora in the U.S.



An exhibit identifying some of the aesthetic threads that connect a diverse, multigenerational group of artists, thus offering a template for future scholarship.

Daily, Now - Nov 17, 2021.

The Middle East Institute Arts and Culture Center is proud to mark its 75th anniversary with the exhibition Converging Lines: Tracing the Artistic Lineage of the Arab Diaspora in the U.S. The exhibit features seventeen leading Arab American and Arab diaspora artists, including pioneering artists Etel Adnan, Hugette Caland and Kahlil Gibran.

Converging Lines explores some of the aesthetic threads that connect the community of Arab diaspora artists whose contributions to American art have gone largely unrecognized. The artworks are linked by shared thematics like exile, memory formation, changing identities and the state of in-betweenness that often accompanies migration.
