About Gallery AWA:
The mission of Gallery AWA is to exhibit art, ideas and other forms of creative expression on socially-relevant topics from under-represented parts of the world. “Bringing More of the World to New York” is our goal. We intently focus on exhibiting creative expressions that are socially-relevant, and provide opportunities for artists to display their work on those themes at our location in Brooklyn NY.
 
Besides exhibiting art, Gallery AWA will also be a meeting place for lectures, talks, world cinema showings, and discussions on socially relevant themes.  We are also planning exhibitions by artists from Iran, Nigeria and Ethiopia in 2016.
