MMAG Foundation in Amman
Mahera and Mohammad abu Ghazaleh Foundation - MMAG
MMAG opened their exhibition Acts of Translation on March 7th.
I took a tour of the artworks on display, and was awed not only by the diversity of artworks curated by Eliel Jones, but also by the great view overlooking the Citadel and old Amman and the grandeur of the old Ottoman/East Medditeranean architecture style houses, and beautiful grounds. The space is definitely inspiring, and the exhibition was interesting and different, to say the least.
Some of the participating artists are John Divola, Alice Neel, Beverly Buchanan, Jumana Manna, Munira Al Solh, Sharif Waked, Malik Sidibe, Helen Marten, and Walid Raad.
The exhibition was organized by MMAG's team members: Co-directore Sonja Junkers and Noura Al Khasawneh, as well as Reham Sharbaji and Ahmad Ameen.
Do drop by, as the exhibition runs till May 15.
