Description

Opening of By His Will, We Teach Birds How to Fly: Ibrahim El-Salahi in Black and White

Part of 'Three Crossings', this exhibition features black and white works from Ibrahim El-Salahi, including ink and paper drawings from his ‘By His Will’ series, and the more recent, dramatic ‘The Arab Spring Notebook’.

The opening on Thursday 23 November at the Prince Claus Fund Gallery will be presented by ‘Three Crossings’ curator Salah M Hassan.

Ibrahim El Salahi (Sudan, 1930), called ‘the godfather of African and Arabic modernism’, Ibrahim El Salahi combines African and Arabic traditions in new conceptual forms. He says the black and white works in this exhibition are among his favourites.

Opening hours during Amsterdam Art Weekend:
Fri 24 Nov. 10.00-20.00 hrs
Sat 25 + Sun 26 Nov. 12.00-18.00 hrs

Exhibition dates for the Prince Claus Fund Gallery:
23 November 2017 through 2 March 2018

About 'Three Crossings': Starting 22 November, the Prince Claus Fund, together with the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts (AFK) present ‘Three Crossings: El-Salahi, Hammons, Brouwn’. This three-part exhibition features works by Ibrahim El-Salahi (Sudan, UK), David Hammons (USA), and Stanley Brouwn (Surinam, Netherlands) at three Amsterdam locations. The works by these three visionary artists are innovative, minimalist, and sharply critical, yet infused with wit and humour.

The opening of Brouwn’s exhibition at EENWERK on 22 November, El-Salahi’s work at the Prince Claus Fund Gallery on 23 November, and Hammons’ work at De Waalse Kerk on 25 November are each part of Amsterdam Art Weekend.
