Art at Watson presents Syrian Eyes of the World Artist Talk

Wednesday, May 1, 2019

1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Stephen Robert '62 Hall, Room 110, 280 Brook Street

Syrian Eyes of the World is an international collective of Syrian photographers. Through their own experiences of migration, diaspora, displacement, and emplacement the Syrian photographers who comprise the collective work together to create intimate portraits of Syrians across the world. Their portraits demonstrate the political as the personal and focus on the diverse perspectives of Syrians, who in the wake of the 2015 exodus, are reimagining and redefining their lives, cultures, stories, dreams, and aspirations.

Please join us for an artist talk with founding photographer, Youssef Shoufan.
