Syria Artists Take Control of Their Country’s Narrative at Belgium Exhibition

BRUSSELS – More than 50 Syrian artists are to be exhibited at a gallery in the Belgian capital Brussels starting from Friday, a show that seeks to show unknown parts of the war-torn country and change its narrative through art.

Musicians, painters, film-makers, writers and sculptors showed their works at the Ravenstein gallery as part of “Tourab:Syria Art Space,” which aims to generate interest for Syria’s cultural riches and its people’s transformative power.

“This is a wonderful space of freedom that was given to me to be able to put out my ideas without any messaging from any party,” exhibition organizer Alma Salem told EFE, adding that they had selected artists with diverse backgrounds and with differing opinions but they had tried to send out a coherent message.

Many of the artists shown were living across the globe, but some were still trapped in a country that has been battered by a civil war for seven years.

The exhibition, which is to remain open for a week, is scheduled to coincide with the second Brussels Conference on Syria, organized jointly by the United Nations and the European Union.
