  • The exhibition at Project Space Art Jameel, Alserkal Avenue, is Maha Maamoun's first solo show in the Gulf
Dubai, United Arab Emirates | September 25, 2017:  Art Jameel's latest initiative in its Project Space in Dubai is an exhibition of video and photographic works by renowned Egyptian artist Maha Maamoun. 
 
‘Works by Maha Maamoun' takes place at Project Space Art Jameel, Alserkal Avenue, Dubai, from September 14 to October 12, 2017. As part of Alserkal Lates programming on Wednesday, September 27, Art Jameel is hosting a talk with the artist. British curator, editor and writer Shumon Basar will sit in conversation with Maamoun to discuss her process and her use of images in her photographic and video works.  The talk which takes place from 6:30pm to 7:30pm at Nadi Al Quoz will be followed by an opportunity for questions from the audience.
 
The exhibition includes select works by Egyptian artist Maha Maamoun: the single channel video 2026 (2010) and four photographs from a series entitled Domestic Tourism I (2005). 2026 overlaps a remake of the memorable image of the time traveller in Chris Marker's La Jetée with an excerpt from a contemporary science-fiction Egyptian novel titled The Revolution of 2053: The Beginning. 2026 runs on an eternal loop and is composed of different pictorial and textual sources that keep running back to the zero hour where the future is on repeat.
 
The four-part series Domestic Tourism I is inspired by generic and idealized images of Egypt, whether promotional touristic images or in Egyptian cinema. These images are presented through four motifs: Park, Beach, Cairo by Night, and Felluca.
 
The exhibition takes place at Project Space Art Jameel, Warehouse 48, The Yard, Alserkal Avenue, September 14 to October 12, 2017, Saturday to Thursday, 10:00am – 6:00pm. Art Jameel exhibitions are free and open to the public; all welcome. Project Space Art Jameel is kindly supported by Alserkal Avenue. 
 
The works were recently acquired by The Metropolitan Museum of Art through a partnership with Art Jameel.
