Reconnecting Arts is a platform that supports emerging Middle Eastern Creatives presents a collective of 8 lens based artists from the Middle East and Diaspora. They reflect on their journeys and the complexities of an identity that is constantly reconnecting.
With this, Reconnecting Arts, invites the audience to reflect on their own identity as well as discover similarities between them, the work and the artists. While all the artists are using a photographic method, the way in which each artist has approached the medium is experimental and questions the way in which the medium is used. The ways in which each one of them reconnects with their surroundings, their past, present and future are all explored freely through imagery, installation and video.
We explore the way in which connections are formed.
