Art in Iraq Today

Dia Azzawi, Charles Pocock, Samar Faruqi

As an outgrowth of Meem Gallery’s Art in Iraq Today exhibition series (2010-2011), curated by Dia Al-Azzawi and Charles Pocock, this publication brings together a group of Iraqi artists with varying working methodologies, whom are united in their experience of exile. Having spent their formative years as artists in Iraq, this book documents their continuing contribution to Iraqi art, and highlights its importance in contemporary Middle Eastern art history. The publication is dedicated to the memory of pre-eminent art critic Jabra Ibrahim Jabra and his seminal essays titled Art in Iraq To-day . Although the artists examined here are now part of the Iraqi diaspora, their work demonstrates the enduring talent of two generations of artists whose work represents Iraqi art today. The artists include Modhir Ahmed, Himat M. Ali, Dia Al-Azzawi, Ahmed Al-Bahrani, Amar Dawod, Ghassan Ghaib, Ali Jabbar, Halim Al-Karim, Nedim Kufi, Hanaa Malallah, Rafa Al-Nasiri, Mahmoud Obaidi, Kareem Risan, Delair Shaker, Ali Talib and Nazar Yahya. Essays by Dia Al-Azzawi, Charles Pocock, May Muzaffar, Farouq Yousif, Nada Shabout, Samar Faruqi, Georges H. Rabbath.
