Press Release

Alexander Gray Associates presented Emirati artist Hassan Sharif's first solo exhibition in the United States. To introduce his work to a New York audience, the Gallery organized a micro-retrospective of works spanning 30 years, including rare photo-documentation of early performance- and process-based projects, experimental works on paper, and two sculptural installations. Of note are photo-documents of the artist’s 1983 durational work, performed in the Hatta Mountain desert in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
