The In Search of Lost Time group exhibition is on at London’s Brunei Gallery, SOAS, opening January 21 and running to March 19.
Curated by Amal Khalaf and Abed Al Kadiri, the exhibition presents the work of 13 artists responding to the effects of the last 60 years of rapid change in the Gulf. As the speed of growth in the economic, physical and socio-political environments of the region has accelerated, so too have the “rifts and tensions between an existing desert culture and rising global capitals” –tradition and technology –grown.
The exhibition is further described by the press release as a portrait of “the complex relationship between image, speed and time in the Gulf, questioning the chronological and territorial notion of the region and the paradigms of its underlying identity”.
