The sculptures and paintings of Syrian-born Al-Hadid (1981- ) appear to be trapped in an eternal moment of precariousness and decay.

Inspired by historical forms from art and architecture, Al-Hadid’s highly material works are charged with drips, textures, patterns, and ornaments that recall Arabic calligraphy and Islamic textile patterns.

Commissioned by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, Syria’s Lost Generation documents a small fraction of a population disproportionately affected by the war: teenagers.

Through portraiture and audio recordings, Elena Dorfman (1965- ) offers a humanistic perspective to the Syrian conflict, a global crisis that has claimed more than 470,000 lives and driven 6.5 million people from their homes.
