Hoor Al Qasimi
Film, video and installation by 14 international artists
This exhibition of work from the Foundation's collection presents a range of artistic responses to some of the most pressing issues we are faced with today. The personal and social cost of rapid economic and urban development, the struggle with a past that confronts a corrupt and changing present, notions of individual and collective resistance and survival in the face of stagnant political or social situations are some of the topics explored in these works, most of which were originally shown in previous Sharjah Biennials between 2003 to 2011. Curated by Sharjah Art Foundation Director Hoor Al Qasimi, the exhibition features work by 14 artists including Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri, Muratbek Djoumaliev and Gulnara Kazmalieva, Nikolaj Larsen, Maha Maamoun, Rashid Masharawi, Jean-Luc Moulene, Moataz Nasr, Marcel Odenbach, Melik Ohanian, Mario Rizzi, Raeda Saadeh, Jayce Salloum, Sharif Waked and Liu Wei.
