Modern Art Oxford presents a solo exhibition of works by renowned Lebanese artist Akram Zaatari (b. 1966, Saida, Lebanon). His exhibition The Script is a thought-provoking exploration of imagery connected with the Arab world, revealing how different communities have chosen to present themselves, from the era of the photographic studio to the YouTube uploads of today.
The exhibition’s centrepiece The Script depicts a young father fulfilling the act of salah with his sons playing mischievously on and around him. This beautiful short film, paying homage to a dual commitment to faith and fatherhood, is presented alongside other fascinating video and photographic works.
