Rich. Learn how Neel's portraits coincided with the gay liberation
movement, contributed to increasing queer visibility, and used visual puns

Arabic poetry is set to new music by Syrian American composer,
vocalist, and musician Faraj Abyad. Rooted in the work of sixth-century
Arabian warrior-poet Samaw'al Ibn 'Adiya, whose work has long been admired
by Muslims, Jews, and Christians alike, Abyad extends the trajectory of his
poetry by adding new writings by three living Arabic poets. Together these
works explore themes of love, longing, separation, and the enduring power
of poetry. Watch now →
