Exhibition at the American Cathedral in Paris addresses today's climate of increasing prejudice and stereotyping
A timely artistic exploration on living harmoniously, inspired by Abraham; the common ancestor of three celebrated contemporary Middle Eastern artists from Muslim, Christian and Jewish traditions.

PARIS.- CARAVAN, an international peacebuilding arts NGO, has opened its new peacebuilding exhibition titled “ABRAHAM: Out of One, Many” in Paris France at The American Cathedral in Paris (23, Avenue George V, Paris, IDF, 75008) running from 18 June – 28 July 2019.

“ABRAHAM: Out of One, Many” is an artistic response to the recent rise of Anti-Semitism and increasing Anti-Muslim sentiment, and to the general climate of growing prejudice and stereotyping, which is resulting in a new type of “tribalism” in the West.

“ABRAHAM: Out of One, Many" (playing off of the popular Latin motto "E pluribus unum" / “Out of many, one”) focuses on what Jews, Christians and Muslims have in common because of their shared ancestor Abraham, a spiritual figure of distinct significance within the three primary monotheistic faith traditions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

The exhibition features three celebrated Middle Eastern contemporary artists – Sinan Hussein Qais Al Sindy and Shai Azoulay - from Muslim, Christian and Jewish faith traditions. Each artist has created paintings that focus on themes from Abraham's life that can guide our world today in living harmoniously, interpreting these themes for our contemporary context.

The exhibition highlights what we can all learn from Abraham’s example about living together more harmoniously. In these three faith traditions, whose followers are referred to a “children of Abraham,” Abraham is seen as a model of hospitality – of welcoming the “stranger” and embracing the “other.” The exhibition attempts to artistically answer the question, “What can Abraham can teach us today about freeing our world from sectarian strife?”

The exhibition will tour for 24 months to heavily trafficked sacred spaces. It premiered in Rome, Italy at the historic St Paul’s Within the Walls from 3 May-9 June 2019. Following the exhibition’s showing in Paris, France, it will be displayed in Edinburgh, Scotland during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2019, before beginning to tour the USA through the middle of 2021. The opening program event in Paris, France was held on 18 June 2019 at The American Cathedral in Paris with Shai Azoulay, a celebrated Jewish artist participating in the exhibition, as the special guest.
