Ben stopped in at the Storefront for Art and Architecture on his way to lunch today (Hoomoos Asli – amazing falafel!) and checked out the new show that just opened on Tuesday. He says the exhibit is excellent and well worth checking out. The show, Refuge, Five Cities, is an exhibition of work by Bas Princen that,
…could be described as a photographic fiction of sorts. Although it is the result of extensive travels and research in five cities of the Middle East and Turkey – Istanbul, Beirut, Amman, Cairo and Dubai – it could just as easily pass as the pictorial record of a drive through a single, imaginary city: a city without a center, populated by extraordinary and at times implausible architectural artifacts; an urban laboratory whose physical traits are defined by migratory flows, spatial transformation and geopolitical flux on a continental scale.

Refuge, Five Cities will be up until June 26, 2010. To read more about it and to find out how and when you can see the show yourself, please take a look at Storefront’s website.
