From Across the Distance: Works From The Barjeel Art Foundation

From Across the Distance: Works From The Barjeel Art Foundation

From Across the Distance provides a glimpse into thought-provoking artistic practices of the Arab world and features the work of London-based Palestinian artist Larissa Sansour, Iraqi-Finnish artist Adel Abidin, and Jordanian-born artist Lawrence Abu Hamdan. Each of these artists shares a portrait of urban capitals imagined during a past, present, or future moment of political and social instability. Although rooted in distinct local histories and contemporary political landscapes, the three videos speak to broader global concerns of collectivity, censorship, and the possibility of co-existent national identities. From Across the Distance features contemporary video works from the Barjeel Art Foundation, an independent collecting philanthropic institution based in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, established by Sultan Sooud Al Qassemi in 2010 to manage, preserve, and exhibit an extensive collection of modern and contemporary Arab art.

From Across the Distance is guest curated by Dr. Sarah Rogers and courtesy of the Barjeel Art Foundation, Sharjah
