In the Heart of Another Country: the Diasporic Imagination Rises

15 July


Originally shown at Deichtorhallen Hamburg, this exhibition exploring the concept of home has been expanded for its Sharjah Art Foundation visit with the addition of recent acquisitions and newly restored works of art from the Foundation’s own collection.

The exhibition examines how mobility across space and time has shaped and contoured the frame of global art today. More than 150 works by over 60 artists will be on view, including works by Etel Adnan, Rasheed Araeen, Huguette Caland, Tiffany Chung, Meschac Gaba, David Koloane and Kamala Ibrahim Ishag. All the artists in the show have traversed migratory routes from South and West Asia, through Africa and the Caribbean, and many now live far from where they first believed that they belonged.

Organised in collaboration with Deichtorhallen Hamburg, the exhibition is curated by Dr Omar Kholeif, Sharjah Art Foundation’s Director of Collections and Senior Curator.

To 24 September.
