Providing an important platform for new and ambitious work from the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia, the ninth installment of the Abraaj Group Art Prize features ‘seepage/ritual,’ an exhibition with the work of winner Rana Begum and the three short-listed artists Sarah Abu Abdallah, Doa Aly and Raha Raissnia.
Organised by guest curator Omar Berrada, the exhibition explores a reconfiguration of our geometries of attention through a playful engagement with literal geometry.
