Sharjah Art Foundation has partnered with sharjah-based Air Arabia in a new exhibition titled 'A Tripoli Agreement'. The exhibition is set to open on Saturday, 14 July at 6:00 pm in Gallery 4, Al Mureijah Square, Sharjah.
The research project and exhibition will be curated by Renan Laru-an who serves as a researcher, a curator and the founding director of Philippine-based DiscLaband. The space will feature newly commissioned works and performances as well as archival and research projects exploring the language, politics and formation of dialogues around official documents.
A Tripoli Agreement is the culmination of Laru-an’s research supported by the Air Arabia Curator in Residence Programme. As part of the residency, Laru-an traveled from Sharjah to Tehran and brought artists and researchers to Sharjah from other Air Arabia destinations such as Mumbai and Istanbul. Through his meetings and discussions, he was able to develop an exhibition that explores the conditions before and after the 1976 peace agreement and the intertwined histories of the different regions involved.
