Syria: Into the Light to feature more than 60 works by Syrian masters and emerging artists

Alserkal Avenue and the Atassi Foundation have revealed details about Syria: Into the Light, the Atassi Foundation’s largest-ever exhibition and its first in the MENA region since its formation last year.

The exhibition will open on 9 March 2017 and close on 3 April 2017.

Curated by Mouna Atassi, the founder of Atassi Foundation, in collaboration with writer and curator Rasha Salti, the show will be based on the theme of ‘Portraits and Figures’ and will include more than 60 works by over 40 artists illustrating the landscape of Syrian art from 1924 up to 2016. Through this theme, the exhibition will highlight the trajectories and shifts of art movements in Syria and its socio-cultural histories, from the early 20th century until the present day, representing different movements, techniques and mediums, including painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, and video art.
