Toronto (July 23, 2015) – The Aga Khan Museum is pleased to announce the release of Home Ground: Contemporary Art from the Barjeel Art Foundation, a new publication showcasing the work of 12 Arab artists from the Middle East and North Africa and an exceptional companion piece to the exhibition of the same name opening at the Aga Khan Museum on July 25, 2015.  Pushing boundaries and testing limits, the exhibition examines how private life is shaped by current political events through photography, installation, sculpture, painting and video.

The 140-page publication features full-colour photographs, artist biographies, and essays by Suheyla Takesh (Curator of the Barjeel Art Foundation), Dr. Tina Sherwell (Director of Academic Programmes, The International Academy of Art Palestine), and Sultan Sooud Al Qassemi, Founder of the Barjeel Art Foundation. Exploring issues of displacement, immigration, and belonging, it offers insight into the challenges faced by artists struggling to cross borders, both political and personal, in the 21st century.

The publication is available July 24 in the Museum Shop at the Aga Khan Museum and online at https://shop.agakhanmuseum.org/.

All texts are in English and Arabic.
Product Price = $28.95

Contributing Writers:
