Through May 16, 2010, the American University Art Museum presents Convergence: New Art from Lebanon. The exhibition really succeeds in highlighting work of a range of mediums – particularly impressive being the sculpture and video work. Above is a shot of Anita Toutikian’s “Culture Cookies” (2009) which combines a vinyl floor installation with a video piece.

About the exhibiton –

This exhibition looks at contemporary art produced in the diverse and multilayered country of Lebanon. Civilizations and their armies have continually converged there over the past six millennia and created a rich and beautiful tapestry that violence periodically threatens to unravel. Contemporary artists synthesize this convergence of influences, perspectives, and conflicts to create works of great beauty and relevance.
