Memory Sews Together Events That Hadn’t Previously Met

Group show with works from the Barjeel Art Collection, including Majd Abdel Hamid
Sharjah Art Museum, Sharjah
Throughout 2022

Drawn from the collection of the Barjeel Art Foundation, artworks in the exhibition reflect the manifold ways in which artists in the Arab world have responded to socio-political events and the human condition across the twentieth century. The selection offers an opportunity to explore the heterogeneity of regional art and its many histories, striving to propose an expanded vision of modernism. The title of the exhibition is inspired by verses from Etel Adnan’s Night, 2016, where she writes:

Memory sews together events that hadn’t previously met.
It reshuffles the past and makes us aware that it is doing so.
