Tishreen marks the season of harvest. A time when women in brightly embroidered dresses gather to pick the olive trees, a time when the land rewards its keepers. These pieces are a commemoration of our ancestral connection to the land. They are a celebration of our traditional embroidered “Toub” (dress), adorned with stitches which themselves are a reflection of the land, its vegetation, birds and animals. It is my salute to the land and its people.

Emergeast is an online gallery championing the latest generation of emerging Middle Eastern & North African artists to a new generation of young collectors. Emergeast’s aim, in collaboration with the Aga Khan Museum Shop, is to break down the barriers to collecting art by facilitating access to high quality artworks at accessible prices.
Through a highly curated selection of Middle East and North African (MENA) artists, our mission is to incubate an un-intimidating space for young collectors, first time buyers and general art enthusiasts to foster a deep connection between artists and collector for generations to come.
At Emergeast x Aga Khan Museum Shop, we believe everyone has a story to tell. Beyond the aesthetics, the story and inspirations behind an artwork can support one’s personal narrative and journey thereafter. Through building our Urbanite community of collectors, we aim to expand and develop a cultural appetite for the arts and beyond.
