Project Space Art Jameel features a solo exhibition of Basim Magdy’s film, The Dent
Art Jameel, an organisation that supports heritage, education and the arts, today announces the opening of a new exhibition – The Dent by award-winning, Cairo-based artist Basim Magdy. Taking place at Project Space Art Jameel, Alserkal Avenue, Dubai, the solo exhibition will run from April 30 to June 13, 2018.
Basim Magdy’s The Dent is a multi-layered video that combines documentary footage, field recordings and written text by the artist. The video will be featured for the first time in the UAE since it debuted at Art Dubai 2014, when Basim Magdy was awarded the Abraaj Group Art Prize. Magdy went on to subsequently win the New:Vision Award at CPH:DOX Film Festival, Copenhagen, and in 2016, was selected as Deutsche Bank’s Artist of the Year. His work has been shown in museums world-wide, and his films have been the subject of special screening programmes at Tate Modern, International Film Festival Rotterdam, ICA London, among other institutions.
