Fast Forward By Mahmood Shubbar
Art Exhibition

Fast Forward an exhibition by Mahmood Shubbar at Art Space Hamra on the 26th of October 2015.
Opening reception from 6:00 to 9:00 Pm.
The exhibition will last until the 2nd of November.

Returning to the Baghdad of 2003, the works of Mahmood Shubbar's "Fast Forward" direct us to the cataclysmic point at which the road of history is systematically altered. Employing pre-invasion road signs of his native Iraq, Shubbar paints, defaces and vandalizes these symbols of a bygone time to announce a future where certainties no longer exist. The names of Iraqi Institutions, statues of the Saddam era, roads to Baghdad now appear as question marks still weighing on the horizon of present day Iraq. Employing the language of vandalization, the artist asks where the road of history will lead when reference points and signs have been lost.

Opening Hours: Monday to Friday: 11 am – 7 pm & Saturday from 11 am – 2pm
