Modern Art Oxford presents a solo exhibition of works by renowned artist and Co-Founder of the Arab Image Foundation Akram Zaatari.

Akram Zaatari (b1966, Sidon, Lebanon) collects, studies and archives the photographic history of the Middle East, North Africa and the Arab diaspora.

His new work, The Script (2018), focuses on his interest in people’s attitudes while filming or photographing themselves, an exploration that emerged from his research of vernacular photography. Zaatari identifies recurring attitudes, fashions and forms of behaviour in front of the camera and how individuals choose to associate themselves with a social class, technology, modern values, or sometimes-dominant ideologies.

The exhibition at Modern Art Oxford will include further film and photographic works by Zaatari alongside this new commission.
