Rayyane Tabet: Alien Property
October 30, 2019–January 18, 2020.

The exhibition will tell the story of the ninth-century B.C. stone reliefs excavated in the early twentieth century at Tell Halaf, Syria and their subsequent destruction, loss, or dispersal to museum collections around the world. Examining the circuitous journey four of these reliefs took to arrive at The Met under the aegis of the World War II–era Alien Property Custodian Act, the presentation will also highlight the very personal connection of the reliefs to contemporary artist Rayyane Tabet.
