This exhibition examines experiments in abstraction that differentiate Arab modernism from its counterparts around the globe. The presentation of works from Mathaf collection privileges a specific take on abstraction that focuses on how regional artists have drawn ideas, visual elements, and techniques from the rich and diverse heritage of the Arab-Muslim world, particularly calligraphy and ornamentation.
Open to all.
26 October 2023 – 5 March 2024.
Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Qatar.
