Event Details

Delfina Foundation is proud to present Amma Baad, an exhibition of sculptural objects and works on paper by former artist-in-residence Nasser Al Salem. Curated by Maya El Khalil and presented in partnership with Shubbak Festival, the show is Al Salem’s first solo exhibition in the UK.

Amma Baad continues the artist’s expansive approach to the practice of Arabic calligraphy, both in terms of form and through his conceptual approach to the phrases with which he works. In this new series, Al Salem contemplates the Arabic phrase ‘amma baad’, an expression that proves difficult to translate into English. Often found in formal Arabic correspondence, the expression follows initial salutations and greetings, while preceding – and perhaps anticipating – the main subject or story to follow. It is a moment dense with expectations.
