At best, political and other leaders are objects of across-the-board admiration; at worst, they are objects of derision. A new exhibition at the capital’s Museum on the Seam, called “And the Trees Went Forth to Seek a King,” addresses the wide range of views of the powers-that-be, with works by artists from a diverse spectrum of social and political backgrounds.

There are contributions from Spain and Iran, Scotland and Russia, Israel and Uzbekistan, each offering its own angle on leadership and how it impacts our daily lives. While some may look up to their leaders with a respect bordering on awe, and others may use them for target practice, curator Rafie Etgar says the inspiration for the exhibition came from the ground level.
