The exhibition, curated by Ali MacGilp and Yasmina Reggad featured newly commissioned and reimagined works from Fayçal Baghriche, Amina Menia, Atef Berredjem, Hanan Benammar, Massinissa Selmani, and Sadek Rahim. Though the six artists represent a wide-range of media, their work is united by its exploration of time and space. In addition to reproducing the art from the exhibition, the book features an engaging dialogue between the curators, which explores Algeria’s relationship to contemporary art practices and the role of the curator in working with artists to develop new works. The catalog also includes biographies of the artists and access to a special soundtrack by Zineb Sedira via a QR code.
