Finding the Middle East in Florence

An exhibition showcasing scanned prints as well as the original sketchbook from the project "Finding the Middle East in Florence". Part of the Middle East Now Festival #6, the show also featured sketchbooks I had completed on 3 previous trips to Italy. Hosted by ETRA Studio d'arte Tommasi, Firenze, the display juxtaposed contemporary drawings with classical sculpture, paintings, and sketches within a personal and intimate space. The exhibition ran between April 11th and May 11th of 2015.
