The Cities Under Quarantine exhibition presents the Artist’s Book project, conceived and curated by Abed Al Kadiri, which includes a powerful documentation of life from the heart of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is a declaration that friendships and community-building can continue in the face of isolation.

Fifty-nine books were handcrafted by Dongola Limited Editions in Beirut and sent to artists distributed in 22 cities around the world, generating unprecedented momentum in expressing the state of human existence in a time of death and isolation.
