Image Making and Popular Archiving in Times of Unrest
Exhibition of contemporary Yemeni Artists + Parallel Events
April 17 – May 5, 2019 | Opening Wed April 17, 5-10pm

On Echoes of Invisible Hearts is a series of location specific exhibitions, initiated by Sanaa-based Diwan Al Fan and curated by Lila Nazemian, each featuring a varying group of artists from Yemen and its Diaspora. The first edition, subtitled Narratives of Yemeni Displacements, was held last September in Berlin. The second, Image Making and Popular Archiving in Times of Unrest, takes place in Beirut to generate a dialogue between the historic and still unfolding havoc in both Lebanon and Yemen. Participating photographers, videographers, installation artists, filmmakers and poets mediate war trauma and forced displacement. They question collective memory and selective amnesia while inviting us to challenge dominant narratives and issues of future transmission.

Alia Ali, Yasmine Diaz, Arif Al Nomay, Thana Faroq, Ibn Seera and Rahman Taha
