Sharjah Art Foundation invites art scholars and museum leaders to a three-part symposium focusing on key questions around representation and exhibition-making, sustainability and accessibility, and the significance of public collections. The three-part symposium is held in tandem with the exhibition In the Heart of Another Country: The Diasporic Imagination Rises, on view until 24 September 2023.
The most extensive presentation of works from the Sharjah Art Foundation Collection to date, the exhibition explores the concept of home, of longing and belonging, drawing inspiration from the late artist and author Etel Adnan’s landmark memoir, In the Heart of Another Country (2004). The exhibition brings together more than 150 artworks by over 60 artists that unfold across borders, both real and imagined.
Registration for this event is now closed.
