Symposium on Modern and Contemporary Art from the Arab Region
This symposium held at the Barbican in 2004, sought to engage with an audience of curators, art practitioners and funding bodies on issues relating to the representation of artists and works from the Arab region. The number and quality of attendees reflected a willingness among art practitioners to find new ways of discussing and engaging with arts from the region.
