"The Body Uncovered" is an exhibition that will run until 15 July at the Arab World Institute in Paris. The exhibition is tackling the stereotypical portrayal of Arab society in Western art, presenting the works of more than 200 Arab artists from the nineteenth century up until today.
While most of these artists were born in Arab countries, they now live and work mainly in Europe and the United States. It’s unlikely the exhibition would ever travel to Arab countries, and improbable that such art would be openly produced in Islamic states. To date, there has been no critical backlash.
