Durham University's Oriental Museum acquires artworks by 13 Emergeast artists

Nikki Meftah

We're delighted to announce Emergeast's first museum acquisition to Durham University's Oriental Museum. Thirty digital prints by thirteen emerging Arab and Iranian artists will be entering the Museum's permanent collection.

The works will serve as the university's foundational collection to teach a new module around the birth of Digital Art. As a gallery, our aim has always been to push our artists into esteemed collections; we are humbled the artworks will now stand against the test of time.
