Contemporary and Modern Arab art
May 18, 2020 9:52 AM   Subscribe

Beirut's Dalloul Art Foundation, featuring contemporary and modern art from across the Arab world, has now placed much of its collection of over 4,000 works online. Fantastic, abstract, conceptual, timely and political, the works are sortable by country, medium and artist (scroll down to see more images on most pages). Detailed bios are being added, many with neat video. Basel Dalloul, whose father Ramzi began the collection 50 years ago, says he's being careful to include "an equal balance of male and female artists." posted by mediareport (3 comments total) 33 users marked this as a favorite

The interface is clunky on a phone, but there is some nest stuff in the collection.

Honestly, I found the interface a little clunky on a laptop, too, but some of the pieces, like Greta Naufal's knitted magnetic tape, Huda Lufti's photocollage, Ahmed Mater's photos and Abed Abdi's mixed media textile work, are really wonderful.
