Description of the Exhibition

SAQA E&ME artists live and work all over Europe and the Middle East or they originally stem from this region and are now located elsewhere, e.g. in North and South America or in the Carribean.
Our project is based on the idea to bring together the diversity, the history, personal memories and the culture of Europe and the Middle East, to tell what we care about, what is important to us, and to express it in an art quilt.
The Orient Express was a luxury train line than originally ran between Paris and Istanbul. More cities and branches were later included.
Our artistic train ride starts in London and incorporates any other European and Middle Eastern cities where our members live or would like to be.
