-At MoMA, the MoMA store features, for a limited time only, the Destination: Istanbul products collection, showcasing contemporary Turkish designers. According to the store’s website “the collection captures the aesthetic of a cultural crossroads where east meets west and ancient meets modern. Istanbul’s celebrated design history is an amalgam of Byzantine and Ottoman influences, blending geometric patterns, rhythmic lines, and vivid colors.” Revenues from products sales will go towards contributing to the Museum’s programs and exhibitions.

-The installation The Hidden Location by Egyptian video artist Hassan Khan will be presented at the Queens Museum of Art, starting May 22nd until August 14th. The 52 minute visual material “takes the city of Cairo and its inhabitants as a container in which disparate scenarios and investigations come to life.” The event will be complemented by parallel activities such as discussions, screenings and a musical performance of the artist following the opening- click here to find out more.
