Mathaf Arab Museum of Modern Art opens Forever Now. Five Anecdotes from the
Permanent Collection, an exhibition on view November 17, 2012–June 1, 2013.

Forever Now posits a new understanding of five diverse modern Arab artists: Fahrelnissa Zeid (1901–1991), Jewad Selim (1921–1961), Saliba Al-Doueihy (1913-–994), Salim Al-Dabbagh (b. 1941), and Ahmed Cherkaoui (1934–1967).

Featuring 57 works from the collection, Forever Now examines artists’ interactions with their immediate environments, histories, and cultures. The stories trace the work of these artists, offering a nuanced dialogue between experience and history, fact and interpretation.
