Head to Los Angeles for a Saudi art exhibition
Inspired by his shock at watching the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York on 9/11, Abdulnasser Gharem’s Pause is the first solo show by the artist in the United States. Now on show at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, it features 11 works of sculpture, stamp paintings, prints and film that explore Gharem’s reaction to finding out that two of the hijackers were his former classmates. LACMA has one of the largest collections of contemporary and modern Middle Eastern art in the US. Gharem’s exhibition also includes a new large-scale installation Camouflage (2017). Abdulnasser Gharem: Pause is being shown at LACMA until July 2. For information, visit www.lacma.org.
