Between Desert and Sea
A Selection from the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts
25 January - 21 April 2013
The result of our collaboration with the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts and comprising modern and contemporary works of various artists from Arab countries around the Mediterranean, the exhibition Between Desert and Sea – A Selection from the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts will be hosted by Pera Museum between January 25 and April 21, 2013.
The works of artists from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, and Tunisia reflect the questions posed by the artists between past and present; between creativity and the real world. The exhibition presents the styles of different generations and the new tendencies in Arab art through paintings, drawings, engravings, ceramics, statues, and installations.
Founded in Amman in 1980 to focus on contemporary Arab art, the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts boasts one of the most important collections in the Middle East, containing over 3000 works by artists from Muslim and Arab countries, as well as those from Asia, Africa, Europe, America, and Oceania.
