Turath: A Virtual Exhibit
Turath ~ A Virtual Exhibit
The Khayrallah Center is delighted to announce the release of Turath, a path-breaking virtual exhibit that maps the rich mosaic of early Arab American culture through music, literature, poetry, art, performance, and journalism. Coinciding with the centenary of al-Rabitah al-Qalamiyya, the first Arab literary society in the US, Turath offers a broad and momentous collection of material culture, for general interest and specialized researchers alike.
Explore fashion icons, like Marie Azeez El-Khoury’s feature on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, the earth-moving performance of Marrie Bayrooty, or the haunting words of Abu Madi’s “The Talkative God.” Turath invokes the power of history through a multimedia platform that is as powerful in the classroom as it is in your home.
In addition to the online exhibit, Turath features a series of webinars with award-winning and diaspora-bending artists, writers, poets, and musicians:
- Jan. 13: Omar Offendum
- Feb. 18: Helen Zughaib
- Mar. 23: Safia Elhillo
- Apr. 14: Rabih Alameddine
- May 06: Tarek Yamani
