Khaleej Modern: Pioneers and collectives in the Arabian Peninsula

Group show including the work of Hassan Sharif
NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery, Abu Dhabi
September 6 - December 11, 2022

This exhibition is a landmark historical survey of twentieth century modern art movements across the Arabian Peninsula, collectively known in Arabic as the “Khaleej.” Based on Stoby’s PhD research, it traces the region’s ‘pre-boom era’ of the twentieth century through 2007 and examines the evolution of visual art movements as the discovery of oil began to transform the region. It delves into the shifting understanding of public and private spaces and their relationship to national identity as expressed through art practices.
