Out of Iraq: Artists Meditations on Their Homeland

Fragmented by Leila Kubba

Beginning November 3, 2006, the Arab American National Museum will host an exhibition entitled Out of Iraq: Artists' Meditations On Their Homeland.

Featuring the work of three Iraqi American painters – Leila Kubba, Nadwa Qaragholi, and Mohammad Fradi – this exhibit explores the past, present, and future of a nation in crisis.   Common themes found in all three artists’ work include the resurrection of memories and hopes, the interruption of dreams by war, and the dissonance of history with the present (both on a national and personal level).

We invite you to enter into these personal meditations filled with longing for, and anxiety about, an Iraq disappeared and an Iraq yet to come.
