Fences, Sausages, and an Ark Hive: Around Cleveland’s Front International Triennial, Part 2

Nasser Al-Salem’s neon sculpture Arabi/Gharbi (Arab/Foreigner), 2016, hangs over the entrance to the Akron Art Museum portion of the triennial. The piece plays on the visual similarities between “Arabi” and “Gharbi,” which mean “Arab” and “foreigner,” respectively, in Islamic calligraphy.
