New York-based international nonprofit organization

ArteEast, a New York-based international nonprofit organization established in 2003 by a group of artists, filmmakers, curators, scholars and educators, aims to present contemporary artists from the Middle East and its diasporas to a wide audience in order to foster a more complex understanding of the region’s arts and cultures and to encourage artistic excellence.


Through public events, exhibitions, film screenings, international film touring programs, a dynamic virtual gallery and a resource-rich website, ArteEast not only supports artists and filmmakers by providing the platforms necessary for them to showcase their groundbreaking and most significant work, but also gives the public the opportunities to learn more about a develop appreciation for the talent of these established and emerging artists.
