 A Guide for Our Times

           Bahrain - Egypt - U.K.

KAHLIL GIBRAN: A Guide for Our Times was a CARAVAN peacebuilding exhibition with editions in Bahrain and Egypt that culminated 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 an unparalleled guide for our times, related to peace, harmony and the building of bridges between the creeds and cultures of the Middle East and West. The exhibition reflected the compelling universal spiritual contribution that Kahlil Gibran has made and continues to make to the world, showing how Gibran’s voice is timeless, a guiding spirit for our times. Gibran’s work focuses on the themes that unite all peoples and religions, leading the reader or viewer on a journey towards peace and harmony, reconnecting us with humanity.
