Exhibition - History is Not Here: Art and the Arab Imaginary

Sunday, Dec 15, 2019 at 11:00am

Minnesota Museum of American Art
350 Robert Street North
Saint Paul, MN 55101

History Is Not Here presents the work of artists who engage the “Arab imaginary” as a strategy for examining various social, cultural, and political positions. Through painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, book art, installation, and video, these 17 artists, working in the U.S. and abroad, make connections between contemporary geopolitics and the histories that inform them. History Is Not Here rejects the idea of history as a fixed category and looks to alternative imagery and language structures from which new “imaginaries” can be generated. Coinciding with Mizna’s twentieth anniversary and co-presented by Minnesota Museum of American Art, this exhibition’s roster is selected from artists featured in the pages of Mizna’s art and literary journal over the years. History Is Not Here: Art and the Arab Imaginary is curated by Heba Y. Amin and Maymanah Farhat.
