The first art exhibit of its kind in Michigan, Epicenter X brings together works by Saudi artists. Despite Saudi Arabia's position as a U.S. ally, Saudi culture is little explored by Americans, but this exhibit seeks to change all that. The curtain-lifting will shed light on the “vast diversity of contemporary artistic practice in Saudi Arabia,” as well as challenge common views and stereotypes of Arab culture. The art will explore poignant ideas centered on urbanization, globalization, religion, and the impact of American popular culture in Saudi society.
