Time Out says

Iraqi-American artist Michael Rakowitz celebrates his heritage in a new exhibition, which includes conceptual installations like a food truck that serves Iraqi dishes and a gigantic scale recreation of the Ishtar Gate made with cardboard packaging and newspaper. The exhibit itself takes its name from a mistranslation of the film title Revenge of the Sith, sourced from a Chinese bootleg of the movie and deomnstrating the power of translation that Rakowitz hopes to capture in his work.
