Convergence: New Art from Lebanon

April 6 through May 16, 2010

This exhibition looks at contemporary art produced in the diverse and multilayered country of Lebanon. Civilizations and their armies have continually converged there over the past six millennia and created a rich and beautiful tapestry that violence periodically threatens to unravel. Contemporary artists synthesize this convergence of influences, perspectives, and conflicts to create works of great beauty and relevance.
