The Sun Rises in the West and Sets in the East Reception

About the Event


Oct 6, 2022, 6 – 8pm



The Sun Rises in the West and Sets in the East brings together eleven artists who address themes of social and political disorder and instability from local and global perspectives through the poetic language of the art of our time. Employing the media of film, installation, photography and performance, the artists in the exhibition ask non-didactic, open-ended questions that seek to encourage debate and dialogue on inequities and disasters instigated by the lingering remnants of colonialism. Guest curated by Sara Raza with featured artists: Lida Abdul, Kader Attia, Yael Bartana, Asli Çavuşoğlu, Ergin Çavuşoğlu, Ali Cherri, Anton Ginzburg, Emily Jacir, Nadia Kaabi-Linke, Nyugen E. Smith, and Nari Ward.

Please note: the performance by Nyugen E. Smith will be rescheduled.
