A Century in Flux: Highlights from the Barjeel Art Foundation

12 May 2018 @ 5.00 pm - 8.00 pm

Share

Curated by Salwa Mikdadi with Barjeel curators Mandy Merzaban and Karim Sultan, this exhibition of key modernist paintings, sculptures and mixed media artworks from the Barjeel Art Foundation collection covers a century of artistic production in the Arab region and its diaspora, beginning from the late 19th Century to the late 20th Century.

A Century in Flux aims to make a selection of modern works accessible for study by researchers, scholars, artists, curators, and art enthusiasts to encourage a greater understanding of the region’s history of artistic production. The exhibition features works by notable modernist artists such as Ibrahim El-Salahi, Saloua Raouda Choucair, and Kadhim Hayder. Also included are recent acquisitions such as Dia Azzawi’s 1968 work A Wolf Howls: Memories of a Poet (above).

The exhibition will remain on display for the next five years through an agreement between the Sharjah Museums Authority and Barjeel Art Foundation.
