Ibrahim El-Salahi: The Prince Claus Fund, The Netherlands
23 November 2017 – 2 March 2018

Modern Forms is pleased to have loaned the extraordinary and significant work ‘The Arab Spring Notebook’ to ‘By His Will, We Teach Birds How to Fly: Ibrahim El-Salahi in Black and White’, an exhibition curated by Salah Hassan for The Prince Claus Fund, Amsterdam.

The show is part of a multi-sited exhibition featuring three visionary artists, Ibrahim El-Salahi (Sudan, UK), David Hammons (USA), and Stanley Brouwn (Surinam, Netherlands). The works by these artists are innovative, minimalist, and sharply critical, yet infused with wit and humour. The exhibition foregrounds each artist’s experimentation with the genre of the “artist’s book” yet also includes, in the cases of El-Salahi and Brouwn, other relevant pieces that broaden our appreciation of their work.
