Occupational Hazards
Public Program - NYC
A Guided Tour by Artists in their Absence

Thursday, July 11, 2019, 6:30 - 7:30 pm
291 Church Street, NYC

Join apexart and ArteEast, on a guided tour of Occupational Hazards that incorporates the stories behind the works on view--told by the artists who made them.

Free and open to the public. RSVP here.

Occupational Hazards artists have added their voices to the gallery space. While their works are here, for many of the artists, travel to the United States is severely challenged or prohibited--whether by cost, visa regulations, or current travel bans. Join apexart and Beth Stryker, Executive Director of ArteEast, on a guided tour of Occupational Hazards that incorporates the stories behind the works and experiences of artists working in the Middle East today, in their own words. Audio tours contributions by: William Andersen (United States/Kuwait), Mohamed Ben Soltane (Tunisia), Aissa Deebi (Palestine/Switzerland), Ahmad Hammoud (Egypt), Shuruq Harb (Jordan), Huda Lutfi (Egypt), Alexandra Stock (Egypt), and Negar Tahsili (Iran).

This event is presented in collaboration with ArteEast for the current apexart exhibition, Occupational Hazards.
