1,001 Syrian Nights & Takht Al-Nagham Photo Exhibit & Reception
1,001 Syrian Nights is an exhibition of previously unpublished images from Jason Hamacher's collection of pre-war Syria photographs recently taken into the permanent collection of The Library of Congress. Hamacher has chosen sixteen large format panoramic photographs to showcase Aleppo's skyline before it was destroyed and its beauty after dark. Traditional Syrian food will be provided by Foodhini which was founded on the idea that food can be used to create new opportunities for our immigrant and refugee communities, and also satisfy the appetites of hungry foodies in search of authentic multicultural meals. Meet and greet the Syrian musicians Lubana Al-Quntar and Takht Al-Nagham - who are performing earlier at the Millennium Stage at the The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts earlier at 6PM.
This reception is co-presented with Lost Origins Gallery as part Multiflora Productions annual month-long DIY global music festival "Flash of the Spirit" that happens across multiple venues in Washington DC during the month of October. Its mission is to present emerging and remarkable international musicians from abroad as well as local musicians from our diverse immigrant communities to celebrate their stories, heritage, and cultures through their music.
