"Home-Land" show of 14 Middle_Eastern artists that was a part of the BETA arts project in Bushwick, Bklyn.Curated by Makram Hamdan.From what I heard, this was, by far, the most impressive show of the whole art festival, and as I heard from a viewer "the most visceral."After all, it's the Middle East !:)Between Barak Alzaid's (Kuwait) nude performance for the whole duration of the show, Joseph Shahadi's (Lebanon affiliation) lam hearts and testicles displayed on the table with needles stuck in some, Makram Hamdan's (Lebanon) live chicken installation with worms, and (Rafael Fuchs nude photographs of Israeli female soldiers, plus the work of the many other talented artists...it was an intriguing (and familiar in a peculiar way) event.
