Event Details:


Exhibition at Mathaf: The Arab museum of Modern Art.

Entry is free

Official Information:

"Forever Now features works from five leading Modernist artists selected from the Mathaf permanent
collection; Fahrelnissa Zeid, Jewad Selim, Saliba Douaihy, Salim Al-Dabbagh, Ahmed Cherkaoui.

By presenting their work with supporting archives and resources, the exhibition will explore how the
artists’ environments, histories and cultures inform their expression of belonging and their changing
modern realities.

Forever Now is part of Mathaf’s ongoing mission to instigate possibilities for new narratives and to
understand the history of modern art as it developed in the Arab world. The selection of works from
the five artists in Forever Now is but a fraction of the wealth of their individual oeuvres. The works
in the exhibition were chosen to underline specific but central themes in their artistic journeys. Most
importantly, in placing the artists’ works in wider historical contexts we are allowed a rare opportunity
to step into their spheres of influence and appreciate the complexities and richness of their visions."
