This exhibition presents a constellation of Mehdi Moutashar’s new and existing works in a wide variety of mediums, demonstrating how his conceptual practice bridges contemporary art with the heritage of the Arab-Muslim world.

Inspired by Arabic calligraphy and ornamental patterns, and perceiving in them an endless potential, his production challenges the familiar categories into which his work might be inscribed, including Abstraction, Minimalism, or Op-Art. The exhibition points to an unmatched understanding of the region’s aesthetic traditions, transformed and propelled into the present thanks to the artist’s original methods.
