Mohammed Ahmed Ibrahim
Curated by Hoor Al Qasimi, the exhibition presents over three decades of the Emirati artist’s practice, which includes paintings, drawings, sculpture and installations. Documentation of the artist’s vast explorations into land art is also displayed. His practice has been inspired by a lifelong relationship with the environment of Khorfakkan, with the Gulf of Oman on one side and the Hajar Mountains on the other. This survey will also trace the aesthetic and conceptual concerns that run throughout his practice, such as his use of permutations and his interest in the demise of nature that accompanies urban development.
Sharjah Art Foundation (SAF) brings a broad range of contemporary art and cultural programmes to the communities of Sharjah, the UAE and the region. Since 2009 SAF has built on the history of cultural collaboration and exchange that began with the first Sharjah Biennial in 1993. Working with local and international partners, we create opportunities for artists and artistic production through our core initiatives that include the Sharjah Biennial, the annual March Meeting, residencies, production grants, commissions, exhibitions, research, publications and growing collection. Our education and public programmes focus on building recognition of the central role art can play in the life of a community by promoting public learning and a participatory approach to art. All our events are free and open to the public.
