This year’s Armory Focus is: MENAM (Middle East, North Africa, and the Mediterranean), and is curated by Omar Kholeif (top photo: third from right).

In his remarks, Mr. Kholeif talked about the Mediterranean as a gateway for entering the history of art and seeing “what different modernities might look like.”

When LE suggested to Mr. Kholeif that Modernism and ISIS were joined at the hip in attempting to separate from and destroy antiquity, he said that was not his focus here.
