The Middle East and Africa

More recently, FfAI has launched a long-term initiative in the Middle East and Africa, concentrating on spaces ranging from the Townhouse Gallery in Cairo, which also functions as a community center, to the Beirut-based Arab Image Foundation, an institution devoted to the various histories of photography in the Arab world, and the third Riwaq Biennale in Palestine, an unprecedented model for the arts biennale in a resource-poor context.
