The Sea Suspended

Barjeel Art Foundation

This exhibition seeks to explore an important era of Arab art history which emerged in a period of intense social change. The adoption of painting by artists across the region, paired with the rise of new nation states in the middle of the 20th Century, led many artists to vigorously search for new forms and styles that reflected new aspirations and identities, and works that dealt with the complexities of the emergence of modern life. Themes of the nation and the self, the village and the city, abstraction, language, and identity emerge and are explored through these works.
