Syrian Migration Series: An Exhibition by Helen Zughaib

  • through February 28, 2019
  • Gallery al-Quds, Washington, D.C.
In this most recent work, Zughaib has created a series of paintings inspired by the narrative paintings of Jacob Lawrence’s 1940-41 Migration series, a visual record of the migrations of African Americans from the south to the north. For her series, Zughaib begins with the uprisings of the Arab Spring and its aftermath, the Syrian war and the subsequent displacements of millions of people that continues to affect the Arab world, Europe and the Americas.
