    For this public event, artists from the "Occupational Hazards" exhibition have added their voices to the gallery space. While their works are here, for many of the artists, travel to the United States is severely challenged or prohibited--whether by cost, visa regulations, or current travel bans. Join apexart and ArteEast on a guided tour of Occupational Hazards presented by the artists in their absence: incorporating the stories behind the works and experiences and challenges of artists working in the Middle East today, in their own words.
