Taking Shape traces the emergence and development of abstraction in the Arab world through paintings and sculpture dating from the 1950s to the 1980s. Drawn from the collection of the Barjeel Art Foundation in Sharjah (UAE), this book features nearly ninety works by a diverse group of artists whose creative visions stretch beyond the boundaries of representation. Shedding light on a number of abstract movements initiated by artists’ collectives as well as individual practitioners in the region and the Arab diaspora, this book examines how these artists moved away from figuration and naturalistic depictions of reality toward investigations into the expressive capacities of line, colour and texture. Placing the featured artists and their works within larger, cultural and global contexts, Taking Shape contributes to the bourgeoning scholarship on and interest in art from the region.
