In Spite of it All, was an exhibition curated by Hoor Al Qasimi. All of the works are part of Sharjah Art Foundation’s growing collection, and most had been shown in previous Sharjah Biennials, from 2003 to 2011. Most of the works were acquired by the Foundation because of their resonance with the socio-political, cultural and economic realities of Sharjah and the wider region. The exhibition featured work by fourteen artists including Ayreen Anastas and Rene Gabri, Muratbek Djoumaliev and Gulnara Kazmalieva, Nikolaj Larsen, Maha Maamoun, Rashid Masharawi, Jean-Luc Moulène, Moataz Nasr, Marcel Odenbach, Melik Ohanian, Mario Rizzi, Raeda Saadeh, Jayce Salloum, Sharif Waked and Liu Wei. This booklet accompanied the exhibition and included descriptions and visuals of works that were on view.
