Hassan Sharif – I Am The Single Work Artist

KW Institute for Contemporary Art is pleased to present the first major retrospective of the Emirati artist Hassan Sharif (1951–2016) in Europe. Sharif, who lived and worked in Dubai, was one of the most influential artists from the Middle East of the twentieth century. He is considered a leading pioneer of Conceptual Art and of new experimental artistic approaches that reconceive a conventional understanding of time, space, form, and social interaction, and which continue to resonate significantly with a younger generation to this day.
