Baghdad Art Exhibition: ‘In the Shadow of Mesopotamia’

An exhibition called “Dans l’Ombre de la Mésopotamie” took place in Baghdad at the French Institute. The event exhibited art pieces made with different methods, such as ink and lithography with a theme around the folds of the soul in the civilisation of Mesopotamia.

Lamia Al-Jewari, the artist of the exhibition, introduces 34 artworks which represent the 7,000-year-old civilisation through its different stages. The materials used include carved wood and stones to express the various experiences of the Mesopotamian civilisation throughout the years.

The artist has found a unique way to portray Iraq’s history and culture which many locals are learning about through contemporary art. The event is open until the 24th of July from 10am to 5pm.
