We'd like to thank everyone who made it out to Panel Discussion we co-sponsored at the New School last night, Visualizing Iraqui Politics & Cultures in Iraq and the Diaspora. A sizeable crowd turned out to Wollman Hall to hear speakers Hashim al-Tawil, Ella Shohat, Michael Rakowitz, Sharokin Betgevargiz, and Sinan Antoon. Thanks also to Nada Shabout, the exhibition curator for Dafatir, for moderating the panel. The event was co-sponsored by the Vera List Center for Art and Politics of the New School and funding was provided by the New York Council for the Humanities. After the panel the speakers joined us back at the Center for refreshments, and to meet our guests from the College Art Association conference, who were enjoying the reception for the current Featured Artist Project: Red Herring Print Portfolio. Many of the artists contributing to the portfolio were able to join us and a good time was had by all.
Here's some pictures from last night:
