IARP is delighted to collaborate with the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council (MRAC) to host an upcoming exhibit of Iraqi and Iraqi-American art, “Iraq Through Our Eyes.” The exhibit will feature work by contemporary Iraqi and Iraq-American artists: Jamal Penjweny, Jaafar Alnabi, Fatin Al-Jumaily, and Adnan Shati.

"Flying is a metaphor that works on many levels. I wanted to show how we all carry a bit of the child within us, and to show a side to Iraq that isn’t tragic” - Penjweny

The exhibit will be on view from September 3 to November 27, 2019, in the MRAC conference room. Visitors are encouraged to call ahead to assure that the space is available for viewing, and weekend or evening hours can be arranged with advance notice.
