Hassan Sharif solo exhibition Experiments, curated by Hervé Mikaeloff, at The Patinoire Royale, Brussels.
The exhibition Hassan Sharif: Experiments, curated by Hervé Mikaeloff in collaboration with the artist, pays tribute this outstanding multidisciplinary artist. Born in 1951 in Iran but who lived most of his life in Dubai, Hassan Sharif is a key figure of today's Middle Eastern art scene.
This exhibition renders an overview of the artist's eclectic work offering a reflection on Sharif's array of explorations, from his early cartoons and performances to his recent paintings, drawings, sculptures and installations. Playful and radical throughout his artistic career, a theorist, writer and educator in his own right, Sharif continued to support and inspire fellow artists.
