Summer in the Middle Eastern art world

 

Dear readers,

As I am sure you are aware, the art world significantly slows down during the summer months. Galleries, artists, and museums take a much needed break. Art of the Mid East, however, will continue to bring interesting stories, collector and artist profiles, as well as exhibition news. 

Some interesting things going on this summer in the Middle Eastern Art World:

Germany:

– Documenta (13) in Kasel, features many works by Middle Eastern artists: http://d13.documenta.de/
