(NEW YORK, NY–September 9, 2016)–The third exhibition of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Global Art Initiative, But a Storm Is Blowing from Paradise: Contemporary Art of the Middle East and North Africa, highlights a wide range of artistic voices and critical concerns from a rapidly evolving region through installation, photography, sculpture, video, and work on paper. Organized by Sara Raza, Guggenheim UBS MAP Curator, Middle East and North Africa, the exhibition is infused with questions and ideas about the region’s colonial histories, and investigates such themes as architecture and geometry, modernism and migration, and the unearthing of previously hidden ideas.
