COLLECTIONS AND COLLECTING: "PERHAPS THE PAST IS STILL LARGELY UNDISCOVERED: RESEARCHING ART HISTORIES"
21 APR 2016
For this second conference of the cycle NEW PESPECTIVES, Sheikha Hoor Al Qasimi, director and president of the Sharjah Art Foundation and director of the Sharjah Biennial, will look into the contribution of research, investigation and working jointly with artists to the development of art history. This will be an opportunity to know the scope and range of activities of the Sharjah Biennial and the Sharjah Art Foundation, whose public programme includes exhibitions, residencies and projects developed together with the local community and major international partners. In recent years, the Sharjah Foundation has fostered a dialogue between the creation of works by contemporary artists and buildings at risk of demolition, which have been acquired and integrated into its collection.

Sheikha Hoor Al Qasimi curated the National Pavilion of The United Arab Emirates at the 2015 Venice Biennale. She serves on the board of directors for MoMA PS1, New York, and the KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin. In 2015 Hoor Al Qasimi was mentioned as one of the most influential people in contemporary art by Art Review/Power 100. She is scholar-in residence at the Institute for Comparative Modernities (ICM), Cornell University, Ithaca, New York and visiting lecturer at the Slade School of Fine Art, London.
