More than 150 works of Arab art across mediums, including paintings, sculpture, drawings, installations and works on paper and spanning 80 years of creativity from 1939 to 2023, will be presented at Christie’s London this summer, from July 20 to Aug. 23.
The exhibition entitled “Modern and Contemporary Art of the Arab World” will be situated within two distinct sections — “Kawkaba: Highlights from the Barjeel Art Foundation” and “Emirati Art Reimagined: Hassan Sharif and the Contemporary Voices.”
This will be the first time that such an extensive exhibition of Arab art will be on view in London, thanks to a partnership with the UAE Ministry of Culture and Youth and the Barjeel Art Foundation, Sharjah, UAE. The exhibition is curated by Dr. Ridha Moumni, deputy chairperson, Christie’s Middle East and North Africa.
Entry to the exhibition is free.
