"Disgraced" Key Art
Having distanced himself from his Muslim upbringing, Amir Kapoor is quickly climbing the corporate ladder at his powerful Manhattan law firm. When Amir and his wife Emily, a Caucasian artist inspired by Islamic painting, host a dinner party for Amir’s African American co-worker and her Jewish husband, the initially pleasant evening quickly erupts into a volatile cultural debate over race, religion and class in the modern world.
The art attempts to juxtapose the main character's Muslim heritage with his current lifestyle / identity.
