Barjeel Art Foundation in the United Arab Emirates.
Set to continue until January 2017, a series of four chronological displays at London’s Whitechapel Gallery bring works from the Barjeel Art Foundation to Britain for the first time. Exhibitions will highlight rarely seen works by artists from Algeria, Palestine, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon and elsewhere, telling the story of Arab art from the 1900s to the contemporary period. The project represents the broadest single overview of Arab art to be shown in the UK to date.
The Barjeel Art Foundation, which is based in the UAE, holds one of the most extensive collections of art from the region. This series of exhibitions at the Whitechapel features over 60 artists and 100 works of art from the collection.
