KAHLIL GIBRAN: A Guide for Our Times was a CARAVAN peacebuilding exhibition at Sotheby's in London featuring work by 38 acclaimed Middle Eastern contemporary artists inspired by the Lebanese born poet-artist Kahlil Gibran and the universal message of peace and harmony found in his poetry, writings and art, such as in his best-selling book The Prophet, which celebrates its 95th publishing anniversary this year. The exhibition visually highlighted how Kahlil Gibran, a supreme East-West figure, can be a guiding spirit for our times by reflecting the compelling universal spiritual contribution that Gibran has made and continues to make to the world. The exhibition illustrated how Gibran’s work unites all peoples, cultures and religions, leading the reader or viewer on a journey towards peace and harmony, reconnecting us with humanity. 

The exhibition was curated by Janet Rady and was in partnership with the Arab British Centre in the U.K. The exhibition at Sotheby's was made possible by the primary sponsor, BARCLAYS (Middle East / North Africa).  CARAVAN held two previous exhibitions inspired by Kahlil Gibran with acclaimed artists in Bahrain and Egypt in the spring of 2018. The two exhibitions, together with a selection of work from new artists, come together for this larger exhibition at Sotheby’s. As an exhibition with a charitable dimension, the proceeds of the artwork go to peacebuilding work in the Middle East through the arts.
