Crossroads: A Collector’s Tale

19 October, 2023 - 8 November, 2023

Within the hallmarks of a captivating exhibition, “Crossroads: A Collector’s Tale” forges a pathway to exploring a rich tapestry of artistic creation.
The exhibition showcases a pastiche of couple collectors Joumana Mourad & Rabie Besiso’s private collection, reflecting their years-long collecting journey. With robust curiosity, they have explored art with its manifold mediums, genres, periods, resulting in an exceptional collection that embodies their diversified personal taste, sensibilities and mutual passion for art. This exhibition features a diverse range of paintings & sculptures crafted by esteemed modern & contemporary art masters from the Arab region. While the collection encompasses a wide variety of forms and themes, they share two fundamental traits: quality & how each artwork is a token of its creator’s creative language.
“A Collector’s Tale” goes beyond being a mere tour of a private art collection. It is an emotional experience that highlights the distinction between the act of acquiring and the deeply-personal pursuit of collecting.

This collection tells stories that offer insight into the minds of creative individuals, bridges past and present discourse & demonstrates how art continues to resonate in our lives. Through a purveyance of reignited curiosity, new ways of thinking about art collecting & a profound appreciation for the power of artistic expressions are flamed.

Welcome to a journey that transcends time & space, where the art of collecting unlocks a getaway to endless possibilities.
– Featuring more than 80 masterworks from the 1940s to the present, encompassing both modern and contemporary art. This exhibition showcases a captivating range of paintings and sculptures that represent the evolution of artistic expression throughout the years.
