1 October – 10 November 2004
Mona El Bayoumi
The Gallery exhibited the paintings of Egyptian artist Mona El-Bayoumi from 1 October – 10 November 2004. The exhibit showcased 43 new pieces reflecting on the consequences of war in the Arab World. Using iconographic imagery, saturated colors, and whimsical subtlety, Bayoumi provided a provocative and unsettling commentary on the human side of the current conflicts, most notably the war in Iraq and the Palestinian struggle for self-determination.
