Helen Zughaib: Migrations

  • May 23, 2019 through July 28, 2019
  • The President Woodrow Wilson House, Washington D.C.
2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the Paris Peace Conference that ended World War I and created today's borders in the Middle East that have affected geopolitics ever since. To mark this anniversary, the Wilson House features the most recent works by Beirut-born artist Helen Zughaib. Her Syrian Migration Series allows for an exploration of the contemporary consequences of the past century through the eye of the current Syrian conflict and the mass migration it has triggered. Zughaib’s series seeks to focus attention on the current Syrian crisis and give voice to those migrants and refugees affected, particularly women and children.
