Summary "This book includes over 80 paintings, sculptures and installations from the Middle East representing a vibrant art scene that will challenge people's assumptions about the region." "The works, gathered over the last four years, touch on sensitive topics. They depict the horror of conflicts past and present, explore suppressed sexuality and examine a woman's place in the Muslim world." "The 19 artists in Unveiled: New Art from the Middle East, are from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Ramallah and beyond. Some still live in their native countries while others have emigrated to the West. Amongst the artists are works by: Diana Al-Hadid, Ahmed Alsoudani, Nadia Ayari, Ramin and Rokni Haerizadeh, Barbad Golshiri and Shadi Ghadirian." --Book Jacket
