Join us as we welcome ArteEast Artists-in-Residence, Lebanese artists Dalia Baassiri (RU artist), Lara Tabet, and Egyptian artist Bassem Yousri for a conversation on working within the rapidly shifting social and political climates of the vibrant cities they call home. The conversation will be moderated by Lebanese photographer Rhea Karam, whose work 'Breathing Walls’ documents the relationship between the inhabitants of Cairo and Beirut and the urban spaces in which voices of the 'Arab Spring' were expressed, suppressed, and negotiated.
