Sharjah Art Museum presents “Ahmed Morsi: A Dialogic Imagination”, co-curated by Hoor Al Qasimi and Dr Salah M. Hassan, featuring Ahmed Morsi‘s body of work from the 1940s up to the present day: as the product of a son of the “Alexandria School”, term coined by the Egyptian novelist and critic Edwar El Kharrat to define the generation of free thinkers in 1940s Alexandria, Morsi’s paintings are marked and deeply saturated by symbolical meanings and poetical representations of the reality.
