After a long hiatus, Jadaliyya's monthly "culture bouquet" returns with a colorful selection of reviews and translations:
May Hawas introduces the recently published diaries of the Egyptian writer Waguih Ghali:
"Waguih Ghali's Diaries: Political Ethics, Personal Aesthetics."
Mehri Khalil responds to Jonathan Jones' less than favorable review of the exhibition Egyptian Surrealism: Art et Liberte at Tate Liverpool:
"Can the Subaltern Finally Speak?"
Robin Moger translates a short story by Yasser Abdellatif:
"A Study in Oedipal Love."
Jadaliyya's culture co-editor Maymanah Farhat contributes two pieces:
- "Arts Versus Cultural Diplomacy" reviews Between Two Rounds of Fire, the Exile of the Sea: Arab Modern and Contemporary Works from the Barjeel Art Foundation, a recent exhibition at the American University Museum in Washington DC.
- Farhat also selects the top-five 2017 art exhibitions in the United States
