Syrian Art in Hard Times

Orient Gallery in Amman and Art Residence Aley in Beirut are cosponsoring an exhibition titled "Syrian Art in Hard Times". Seven Syrian artists will take part in this exhibition: Adnan Abd El Rahman, Hasko Hasko, Rabee Kiwan, Husien Tarabieh, Khaled Al Boushi, Remy Haddad and Mohamad Omran

In contrast to mainstream media reports, the exhibition seeks to provide a different perspective on the Syrian crisis from the creative minds of those living it. Through the lens of the artists, the exhibition shows how war has discoloured Syria.

Despite their bruises, the art speaks out: we are very much alive
