The Iraqi and American Reconciliation Project is honored to present to you an exhibition exploring homemaking and memories in the portraits of Iraqi Minnesotans by Iraqi Minnesotan photographers Ahmed Alshaikhli and Jaafar Alnabi. Curated by the CarryOn Homes collective. These portraits and stories give us a complex and intimate portrayal of what home was, is, and what it can be. In light of the COVID-19 Pandemic, a virtual exhibition, including a 3-D walkthrough, is available. We want to invite you to an outdoor socially distanced opening day reception October 10, 1-4 PM. We are celebrating our community with individually wrapped Iraqi sweets, cardamom tea service, and live Iraqi music! Thanks to members of our Iraqi community we will also have an Ice-cream truck on site and packaged Iraqi food will be available for sale. We want our community to celebrate safely! In order to ensure we are keeping you safe we are taking the following COVID-19 precautions. The BLCA is limiting visitor capacity in the building to 25% and taking extra sanitization precautions in the galleries. Seating outside will be made available at least six feet apart. All refreshments served will be individually wrapped and sanitized. The gallery is a touch free space. Masks are required. If you cannot attend in person we will facebook live stream live remarks and take you through a short tour of the exhibition! Dates: October 10, 2020 – December 12, 2020 | Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-4pm or by appointment.
