This bilingual (French-English) publication of 208 pages illustrated with 200 color images is the catalog of the exhibition of the same name taking place at the Villa Emerige, Paris 16th from October 15 to November 12, 2011.

In addition to placing the works presented during the exhibition in the context of the personal approaches of each of the artists, it offers a plurality of points of view on contemporary Arab art - understood in all its singularities - as it has developed until today. The iconographic part, also important within the book, bears witness to the diversity of paths taken by the artists in the exhibition.
