Adel Abdessemed L'âge d'or
6 October 2013 - 5 January 2014
Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art is pleased to present a landmark exhibition by Adel Abdessemed titled L'âge d'or. Curated by Pier Luigi Tazzi, this exhibition will include recent works including drawings, paintings, sculptures and videos, many created by the artist especially for this show in Doha.
Working across a wide range of media, Abdessemed transforms well-known materials and imagery into charged artistic declarations. Abdessemed has described himself as "an artist of acts," and his works are known for their forceful impact and symbolic resonance. Taking materials into great consideration, he is often provocative in their use; camel bones, gold, salt, brass, gum, and terracotta take on new and multiple meanings. LINK mathaf
