But for many Americans, the Iraq War is a recent but distant memory—one that’s been out of sight, out of mind. And just when you’re about to forget, you’re reminded that it’s never really left our collective conscience. Especially for more than 50 of the Iraqi artists participating in MoMA PS1’s coming group exhibition this fall. The war may have ended but the conversation has long been ongoing, and will be having a historic moment in Contemporary Art history this November. The Exhibition will be open from 3 November 2019 until February 2020.
