LANDMARK: Landscape Photography in the Arab World
Featuring works by MANAL
On display January 24 through March 3, 2023

Public Event:
February 3, 2023: 4-5:30 pm
Panel discussion with the artists, moderated by Professor Stephen Sheehi in Bowen Auditorium, McCreary Hall, with reception to follow in Schmucker Art Gallery until 7:00 pm

This exhibition features the work of contemporary photographers Manal Abu-Shaheen and Aisha Mershani who examine how specific locations in the Arab World are marked by social, political, and environmental changes. Taken together, their photographs of architectural ruins, commercial billboards, border walls, and empty streets – all broadly understood as landscapes without human subjects – attest to a shared impulse to document the consequences of violence and occupation in the region.

This exhibition is co-sponsored by the following departments and programs: International and Global Studies, Public Policy, Cinema and Media Studies, Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies, and EPACC, Gettysburg College
