Illuminated Space


Illuminated Space is the solo exhibition of New York-based artist Samia Halaby and highlights the artist’s latest experiments in abstraction, which unfolded over the course of two years.


Documentary Drawing of the Kafr Qasem Massacre


The exhibition features a selection of drawings that depict the murders of 49 Palestinian civilians by Israeli border guards in 1956. More than a decade of research inform these works, as Halaby interviewed survivors of the massacre and the relatives of its victims in the Palestinian village and translated historical documents. The resulting works employ a drawing style that is patterned after the realistic investigations of the body and nature that were popular during the Renaissance.



About: Founded in 2006, Ayyam Gallery is a leading arts organisation that manages the careers of diverse established and emerging artists. Blue-chip art spaces in Beirut and Dubai, a series of collaborative projects in the United States, Europe, and Asia, and a multinational non-profit arts programme have furthered the gallery’s mandate of expanding the parameters of international art. With its widely respected multilingual publishing division and a custodianship programme that manages the estates of pioneering artists, Ayyam Gallery has also contributed to recent efforts that document underrepresented facets of global art history.
