Another way of discovering contemporary art, is by approaching it from a geographical perspective. Such an approach allows you to immerse yourself in the creative energy of a specific part of the world, and to understand the points of encounter. Giving you a panorama of modern and contemporary Arab art, the Arab World Institute gives you the opportunity to admire the artistic richness of the Arab world, through this exhibition of the Barjeel collection. Installations, pictures and paintings, figuration and abstraction, the artists have explored all the means of expression, promising a visit full of discoveries.
