Caravan

Barjeel Art Foundation

Caravan is a term that historically denotes a company of travelers – often merchants, pilgrims or migrants – who venture across desert trade routes for business, cultural or spiritual purposes. Through history, fiction and travel literature has portrayed caravans in the Middle East in a way that straddles fantasy and reality. Artists in this exhibition explore ideas of travel, nostalgia and reconstructing the past in a way that reveals the hazy divide between recorded history and myth.
