A Syrian Chronology
Atassi Foundation’s inaugural project, A Syrian Chronology, will first be shown as part of Art Dubai Projects ( 16 - 19 March 2016). Produced by Syrian film director Hala Alabdalla and artist Khaled Barakeh, the commissioned mixed media installation will utilize the Foundation’s extensive archival material from Atassi Gallery’s 30 year history to weave together the story of art in Syria.
The audio visual spectacle includes various mediums and techniques including showcasing actual artworks, the use of multiple large-sized screens showing specially produced short films, accompanied by music, light and voice effects to ensure that the various elements of the installation work together in harmony.
The installation aims at providing a comprehensive summary of art in Syria starting with the contemporaries, working its way back to the modernists and pioneers of art in Syria.
