Sara Raza

Disarm from Desert of Pharan was shown as part of a major group exhibition curated by Sara Raza, at the Guggenheim in New York.

Through painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, and video, But a Storm Is Blowing from Paradise: Contemporary Art of the Middle East and North Africa presented a spectrum of artistic voices and critical concerns from a rapidly evolving region. Interwoven with questions around the Middle East and North Africa’s colonial histories, the exhibition investigated themes such as movement, migration, architecture, and the process of uncovering hidden ideas or “conceptual contraband.”
