This is a collaborative exhibition for Middle Eastern artists that I will be taking a part in.
Definition: Transition is the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another.
The exhibitions aim is to engage in dialogue about how artists from the Arab world are individuals transitioning through life. We see the Arab world being exposed to different cultures, the rise of third culture kids or the merge of mixed backgrounds is becoming more common, we see more young people having political opinions, the social rise on social media is widespread and the balancing of both West and East is on a scale that continually drops or heightens. Where usually one person is often a spokesperson for the entire community rather than as their individual self, we aim to shift away from that notion and encourage growth of the individual, to explore the complexities of an identity and the ever transitioning stages we each go through.

Reconnecting Arts is a platform supporting emerging contemporary Middle Eastern creatives. We aim to increase the visibility of Arab emerging creatives in the region as well internationally through our exhibitions, features, magazines and workshops we offer. We want to create a space where a refreshing idea of Arab work and narratives are shown by Arab Artists themselves, where they can challenge, question and create dialogue about their own experiences. Our mission is to provide opportunities for a network of creatives and the community to Reconnect with each other. We are committed to facilitating cross cultural dialogue.
