For its 20th anniversary, St. Paul-based Arab arts organization Mizna is partnering with the Minnesota Museum of American Art for an exhibition. Curated by Heba Y. Amin and Maymanah Farhat, “History Is Not Here” highlights 17 artists who have been featured in Mizna’s art and literary journal over the years. The collection includes work from artists working in the U.S. and abroad who are making connections between historical and current geopolitics, using alternative imagery and language structures to create paintings, drawings, book art, installation, and video.
