Artwork by Slavs and Tatars.

The Hurford Center for the Arts and Humanities, Twelve Gates Arts, and the Philadelphia chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations host a virtual visit to the Berlin studio of artist collective Slavs and Tatars. Participants will meet the artists behind The Contest of the Fruits and learn more about the origins of the Philadelphia-based project.  

With inspiration from a fourteenth-century Muslim text, Hurford Center’s The Contest of the Fruits engages Slavs and Tatars in an artist residency that will produce a film, an array of public programs, and a publication that considers cultural heritage and identity. 

This online event is free, but advance registration is required.
