RE: Orient

Barjeel Art Foundation

Examining art production between the 1950s and 1970s, which for many Arab countries marked a pivotal period of transition from French and British imperialism, provides a glimpse into the subjective framework within which artists were operating. Art making often connects subjective experiences with the prevailing socio-political and cultural circumstances, and modernism in the Arab world epitomised a dynamic exchange of ideas. Re: Orient is a conversation, persisting to this day, about the development of art in this 30-year period.
