That Feverish Leap into the Fierceness of Life, curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath

This non-selling collateral exhibition is presented by Art Dubai Modern and is supported by Misk Art Institute.

“If we fail to fulfill ourselves through art, as through all other realms of thought, we won’t be able to make that feverish leap into the fierceness of life.”
Manifesto of the Baghdad Group for Modern Art, 1951

The exhibition will present around 70 artworks of different modernist art movements across the Arab world between the 1940s and 1980s. A close look at five particular schools in Casablanca, Cairo, Riyadh, Khartoum, and Baghdad will reveal the diversity within intellectual and formal contributions to modernist discourse and practice by these artistic groups.
