Artiquea Gallery is proud to have hosted a series of high profile exhibitions.
“Riding on Fire: Iraqi Art Under Occupation” was held between September 18 and October 31 2008 when 23 artists, all of whom were still living in Iraq, were able to take a step into the outside world.
Despite the hurdles and hazards, these artists managed to remain creatively active and engaged in a very hostile environment and produced a stunning array of work.
The 47 works on show ranged from bronze statues made by well-known artists like Nijm Alqaisy, Ali Rassan and Ridha Farhan to the amazing paintings of Fakher Mohammad, Sattar Darwish, Dhia Alkhozai, Qassem Sabti…
The exhibition achieved part of our goal of bringing to light the huge untapped talent of Arab artists.
