Hassan Sharif, among others, included in the exhibition of works from the Barjeel Art Foundation’s collection, curated by Omar Kholeif, at the Whitechapel Gallery, London.

The Barjeel Art Foundation is based in the UAE and was founded by Sultan Sooud Al-Qassemi in 2010. It holds one of the most extensive collections of art from the region, dating from the 1900s to the present day. This series of exhibitions at the Whitechapel Gallery features over 60 artists and 100 works of art from the collection, and explores four different themes, which examine ways of defining Arab art from its early modernist beginnings and geographies.
