Before and After


Before and After is a solo exhibition by the Emirati artist Hussein Sharif. It marks the artists return to the art scene after a long absence and acts as a small retrospective with around 25 artworks including drawings and collages from the 1980s and 1990s, recent work from 2015 and 2016 and new installations. Hussain Sherif is a very important figure in the history of the UAE arts scene, the brother of the artist Hassan Sharif, he was instrumental in the new way of working with found objects and recycled art.



Salwa Zeidan Gallery has been operating since 1994 in Abu Dhabi. Reopening in 2009 in a new location on Saadiyat Island, the gallery continues to represent both well-established and emerging contemporary artists from all around the globe and in 2013 launched an online gallery enabling the artists and artworks represented to receive even more attention and international appeal.
