As seen through the critical lense of the country’s artists, the conflicting concepts defining the people and its sociopolitical scene are explored through this exhibition. The constant friction as a country standing in between the waves of Eastern and Western influence and weighed down by its own traditions, its art scene has flourished more than ever.
