The Sultan Gallery is proud to present 'Graduation Ceremony', a sixth career solo exhibition by visual artist Aseel AlYaqoub.

Using Joseph Massad's book "Colonial Effects" (2001) as a lens, the artist delves into Kuwait's military genealogy to uncover whether its symbols and traditions are nationally born or inherited from colonial legacies. AlYaqoub recontextualises her research through a range of witty works in varying mediums and styles, questioning whether Kuwait's national culture–born out of the military–is not so much 'traditional' as it is 'traditionalised'.

Open to all
March 7 – April 28, 2022
