Modern Arab art : formation of Arab aesthetics by Nada M Shabout( Book )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modern Arab Art provides a historical and theoretical overview of the forces that have spawned artistic movements across the Middle East from the 1940s through today. Nada Shabout recognizes the important distinction between Arabic art and Islamic art, and views them as overlapping rather than synonymous subjects." "Based on interviews with Arab artists, reviews of Arabic resources, and visits to sites and galleries in the Arab world, Shabout provides an introduction to a field that has been long neglected. With particular emphasis on production, reception, and the intersection between art and politics in Iraq and Palestine, she reveals the fallacy in Western fascination with Arab art as a timeless and exotic "other.""--Jacket
New vision : Arab contemporary art in the 21st century( Book )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With over 500 stunning colour illustrations New Vision: Arab Contemporary Art in the 21st Century offers the most comprehensive, scholarly and in-depth survey yet of what is happening at the cutting-edge of art in the Arab world." "In the perpetual quest for the new, the exciting and the innovative, the attention of the global art community has in recent years been more and more focused on the Middle East. Exhibitions and articles have highlighted a remarkable burst of creativity in the region, as Arab countries from Syria to Algeria, Egypt to Lebanon and Palestine to Saudi Arabia have launched some of the most fascinating artists in recent years." "The conceptual playfulness of Hassan Khan, the charged paintings of Jeffar Khaldi, the organic sculptures of Diana Al-Hadid, and the moving photography of Yto Barrada have dazzled audiences with their variety, innovation and thoughtfulness. Until now, however, nobody has captured the vitality of the region s art in a single book." "Five groundbreaking essays offer the best context to date for contemporary Arab art. These are followed by some 90 superbly illustrated profiles of key artists, organizations and galleries. Mixing the well known (such as Mona Hatoum or Susan Hefuna) with the up and coming (for example, Steve Sabella or Mireille Astore). Exclusive interviews with artists and key curators give an unrivalled insight into the aims, ideas and inspirations of this new generation." "Perfect for all scholars, students and lovers of art, as well as all those interested in the broader Arab cultures, this book is set to become the touchstone publication on this increasingly important and exciting subject."--Jacket
Interventions : a dialogue between the modern and the contemporary by Nada M Shabout( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Multiple languages and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary Arabic art is almost completely unknown in much of the West. The mission of the Arab Museum of Modern Art is not only to showcase a unique collection, finally accessible to students, academics, scholars and the international community, but also to act as a new institution with programs running alongside the exhibition to enhance its worth. This exhibition catalogue presents the collection's highlights to expose new audiences to modern art from the Arab world. It accompanies the first long-term installation in the museum's galleries, and presents works in thematic, chronological and regional context to allow visitors to make aesthetic and historical connections. The exhibition's themes are Landscape; Portraiture; Cityscape; Folk themes; Politicized content and form; Social Realism; Abstraction. -- Book Description
Modern art in the Arab world( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Modern Art in the Arab World, Primary Documents' offers an unprecedented resource for the study of modernism: a compendium of critical art writings by twentieth-century Arab intellectuals and artists. The selection of texts--many of which appear for the first time in English--includes manifestos, essays, transcripts of roundtable discussions, diary entries, letters, and the guest-book comments including those featured here. Traversing empires and nation-states, diasporas and speculative cultural and political federations, the book's documents bring light to the formation of a global modernism, through debates on originality, public space, spiritualism and art, postcolonial exhibition politics, and Arab nationalism, among many other topics. The collection is framed chronologically, and includes contextualizing commentaries to assist readers in navigating its broad geographic and historical scope. Interspersed throughout the volume are sixteen contemporary essays: writings by scholars on key terms and events as well as personal reflections by modern artists who were themselves active in the histories under consideration. A newly commissioned essay by historian and Arab-studies scholar Ussama Makdisi provides a historical overview of the region's intertwined political and cultural developments during the twentieth century"

Images of a gendered kingship : visual representations of Hatshepsut and her influence on images of Nefertiti by Kristina Marie Hilliard( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I investigate why gendered images of Hatshepsut influenced androgynous images of Nefertiti in New Kingdom Egypt and how Nefertiti and Akhenaten used their images in the promotion of their monotheistic religion; through a contextual, stylistic and feminist examination of the images. Hatshepsut cultivated images of herself to legitimize her rule in relation to canonical kings before her. Similarly, Nefertiti represented herself as a figure indiscernible from Akhenaten, creating an image of female co-rulership. Although the visual representations of both Hatshepsut and Nefertiti differ, the concepts behind each are analogous. They both manipulated androgyny to create images displaying powerful women equal in status to male Egyptian kings
