    Yemen, situated at the South Western point of the Arabian Peninsula, is one of the poorest countries of the region and is historically marked by great political instability. Today, it is branded by the media coverage of violence, terrorism and civil war. Often, the question “is there Yemeni art?” is a summary of the various interrogations that emerge in organizing an exhibition about Yemen’s art worlds. The question itself reveals a lack of available tools to appreciate modern and contemporary Yemeni visual art, particularly when the observer is foreign, understands different aesthetic valorizations, and when there is a virtual absence of sources on this field. The documents gathered in this exhibition thus seek to rectify this, by presenting a rich, varied and eclectic source of documents.
