Event Description

Salman Ahmad, Fabrice Hadjadj, Alicia Jo Rabins, Shirin Neshat, Damien Poisblaud
Hosted by: Reza Aslan

Performing artists and writers will come together on stage: a testament to a hoped-for future of peaceful collaboration between the three great faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The evening will gather Shirin Neshat on the written word in Islam, Alicia Jo Rabins who will perform poems set to music about women in the Torah, Salman Ahmad who will play traditional ghazals mixed with rock and roll, and Fabrice Hadjadj who will read on the book of Job, in a duet with Gregorian chant singer Damien Poisblaud.

This program is part of series of events related to NYPL’s exhibition Three Faiths: Judaism, Christianity, Islam on view in the Gottesman Exhibition Hall, Stephen A. Schwarzman Building through February 27, 2011.

Sponsored in part by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
