“Tribe: Contemporary Photography from the Arab World” is an exhibition highlighting a selection of artists published within the eight editions of “Tribe”—a magazine founded in Dubai that is dedicated to covering developments in photography and new media from the Arab World. The exhibition contextualizes an expansive field of image-based work through various themes, while celebrating artists both internationally acclaimed as well as those whose practices have recently been recognized. At times artists poetically deploy hues, shadows and partial images to nuance aspects of Arab culture. By expanding our appreciation and understanding of the variety of photographic practices creatively deployed by artists from throughout the Arab World, through its publications and first exhibition, “Tribe” aims to place these accomplished artists on a global stage within the larger sphere of contemporary photography. On view November 10-December 16, 2018. More here: www.american.edu/cas/museum
