XOL is short for the Latin “Ex Oriente Lux”, an ancient Roman slogan, meaning “Light Comes From the East,” a recognition that civilization started in the Middle East.

Based in Baltimore MD, XOL is an art gallery and residency dedicated to providing young Middle Eastern Artists a refuge and an outlet to showcase their work in the United States. XOL features contemporary art by established and emerging artists from the Middle East.

Our mission is to avail art in unmasking the intrinsic sociopolitical making of the Middle East. We decided that instead of cursing the darkness that ravages the region, we are going to shine a light on it through art.

XOL Gallery is located in the heart of Baltimore’s Mount Vernon cultural and historic district. The gallery is housed in a renovated former warehouse built in 1860 and can be accessed from two street addresses: 830 Park Avenue and 855 Tyson Street.
