Curating Modern Abstraction from the Arab World
In this talk, Suheyla Takesh addresses the process and challenges of curating modern art from North Africa and West Asia. She discusses the curatorial strategies, pitfalls, and questions that arise while studying modernism in the non-West and developments that conceptually preside outside established art-historical frameworks. Using examples from the exhibition, she offers an expanded view of global modernism in the arts, and discusses multiple and manifold histories of global abstraction.
