Yara Almouradi: Seen and Heard

Turner Gallery | November 13 - January 9, 2022

Yara Almouradi: Seen and Heard presents 9 portraits of Syrian refugees in graphite with ephemera from their lives.

The goal of this project is to counter Western media output regarding the Syrian Revolution and refugees. The violence, trauma, defeat and victim-centric track needed to be derailed and it is Yara's mission to do so utilizing her art.

By presenting Syrians, who happen to be refugees, Yara ensures that her subjects are first seen as individuals then heard as a community.

He always believed in creating realistic, detailed masterpieces, that would best showcase his utmost abilities. Pointer welcomes challenging and seemingly difficult projects; it keeps him sharp. Success came after lots of practice, perseverance, self-discipline, patience and determination.

The National PTA's Reflections program has been inspiring student artists for over 50 years. Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme.

Each entry is accompanied by an artist statement, in which the student explains his/her feelings or thoughts about the art. Students were invited to submit art in the following categories: Visual Arts, Literature, Film Production, Dance Choreography, Music Composition, and Photography.  Muzeo is proud to feature art works from students in grades Kindergarten to 6 in the categories of Visual Arts, Literature, and Photography.
