Exhibition 1993
Al hijara

Al Hejara is the first substantial showing of a body of work by the artist Bashir Makhoul, following the success of numerous group exhibitions both in this country and abroad.

Makhoul’s work can be seen and interpreted at several levels, from political and polemic narrative, to minimal and conceptual art, above all he has established an independent identity.

The paintings and installation in this exhibition represent a dynamic, poetic visual discourse, by an artist who continues to create new and challenging works.

(“…what happens when a new work of art is created is something that happens simultaneously to all the works of art which preceded it. The existing monuments form an ideal order among themselves, which is modified by the introduction of the new (the really new) work of art among them. The existing order is complete before the new work arrives; for order to persist after the supervention of novelty, the whole existing order must be, if ever so slightly, altered…” T.S. Eliot)
