About the event

GCC’s art practice often utilizes widely circulating digital imagery, political theater, and contemporary life generated in the Middle East to create monumental objects and experiences. This may result in seemingly ancient bas-relief sculptures, immersive sculptural environments, and sound pieces, for example. In the evening’s conversation, the artists will address questions about ritual and belief systems in nation-building with particular attention to new practices of the governments in the Gulf region of the Middle East, and parallels in art-making.

GCC is an artist collective with strong ties to the Gulf Region of the Middle East, whose name, an acronym that does not necessarily stand for but alludes to the Gulf Cooperation Council.
