FIELD MEETING: THINKING PROJECTS

Laura Barlow (Doha)

Line without Line, Color without Color: the work of Saloua Raouda Choucair


In this curatorial talk, Barlow took a close look at the active rhythms of progress in the paintings, sculptures, and writings of the trailblazing Lebanese artist Saloua Raouda Choucair (1916- 2017) who was little known outside of her region till very recently. In exploring Choucair’s approach to internal and external systems in relationship to organic and built environments, Barlow initiated a process of mapping her work as an expanded sculptural, architectural, and design practice within an international modernism.
