LAST CHANCE Artist’s Rooms: Maha Malluh
9 February 2019Free
The Jameel Arts Centre has a number of rooms that it gives over to individual artists for long-term exhibitions. In Gallery 1 is Maha Malluh from Saudi Arabia; her work reflects the vernacular, visual culture of that country, and the impact that global influences continue to have there. Malluh’s Artist’s Room features sculptures and assemblages created from recycled materials and objects found in junk shops, flea markets and deserted construction sites – discarded objects, indicative of a globalised throwaway culture – that are repurposed into large-scale installations.
Drawn largely from the Art Jameel Collection, Artist’s Rooms is a series of solo exhibitions by influential, innovative artists, with particular focus on practitioners from the Middle East, South Asia and Africa. These capsule shows are collaborative: curated in dialogue with the artist, with some presentations including new commissions.
