Home Ground

Barjeel Art Foundation

The connection one feels to place is an abstract notion, often spoken of in terms of memories, habits, rituals, and experiences. Home Ground addresses the struggles associated with navigating geo-political barriers, and explores ways in which identity is shaped by one’s relationship with a particular geography. The works in this exhibition have relevance beyond their individual contexts, touching upon themes and experiences that resonate on a global scale. This exhibition is jointly organised by the Barjeel Art Foundation and the Aga Khan Museum.
