Overview

“At its best, this candid collection from the Islamic world is inventive and truly fearless.”- The Observer, London 
  
This lavish volume, published to accompany an exhibition at London’s new Saatchi Gallery, is a striking collection of contemporary art from the Middle East. As Lisa Farjam, founder of Bidoun magazine, writes in her introduction, “The Middle East today is routinely viewed through the all-too-predictable prism of strife, oppression and terrorism, which obscures a great deal.” With works gathered from artists of Middle Eastern origin living all over the world, Unveiled reveals a region of dizzying complexity and energy, characterized by diverse cultural, historical and political influences that stretch back centuries. Diana Al-Hadid, Ahmed Alsoudani, Nadia Ayari, Ramin and Rokni Haerizadeh, Barbad Golshiri and Shadi Ghadirian are just a few of the artists whose work is represented in these vibrant, stunning pages.
