On the fifth and final show of our 2022 season, Refugee Eye Gallery is featuring five refugee and immigrant visual artists. We chose the Liminal theme as it’s the in-between space, where most people who experienced fleeing home and experienced exile feel. This year, we were honored to feature over twenty visual artists worldwide. This gallery serves as a home for all of us to continue sharing our experiences through art.  

In anthropology, liminality is the quality of ambiguity or disorientation that occurs in the middle stage of a rite of passage, when participants no longer hold their pre-ritual status but have not yet begun the transition to the status they will hold when the rite is complete.

In this show, we’ll go with you to different countries and identities, featuring work from Syrian photographer Abdul Aziz Doukhan, mixed media from Lebanon/Palestine by Hala Kaddoura, paintings by Ukrainian artist Maria Yanenko, (the uniquely Ukrainian ornamental style known as Petrykivka was placed on UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2013), Pakistani Canadian illustrator Noorulian Khan, and calligraphy work by Yemen’s Layle Omran. Each artwork tells a story of home, political reasons for fleeing, and glimpses of culture and heritage in paintings.
