Aga Khan Museum says
Join a who’s who of Canadian artists, critics, and curators for this one-day symposium exploring questions of belonging and identity!

Since arriving at the Aga Khan Museum, the exhibition 'Home Ground: Contemporary Arab Art from the Barjeel Art Foundation' has garnered critical acclaim for its powerful and provocative content. Shown together for the first time, extraordinary works by 12 Arab artists speak to the difficulty of crossing borders, both political and personal, in the 21st century.
What common ground exists between the exhibiting artists and artists here at home?

Register today and ...

• Listen to keynote lectures by First Nations artist Robert Houle and cultural critic Dot Tuer and discussions by Mohammed Mohsen, John Greyson, Zainub Verjee, Luis Jacob, and Swapnaa Tamhane;
• Enjoy a tour 'Home Ground' with artist Jamelie Hassan and the
