Rayyane Tabet, artist
Join contemporary artist Rayyane Tabet and Met curators to explore the development of Rayyane Tabet / Alien Property. The exhibition tells the story of the ninth-century B.C. stone reliefs excavated at Tell Halaf, Syria, and their subsequent destruction, loss, or dispersal to museum collections around the world. In this discussion, the collaborative team consider their shifting perspectives on the exhibition, which opened in October 2019, in light of the past few months' global events. Note: This is a live event. Space is limited; advance registration is required.
