“An Object Resembling an Artwork,” by Ahmed Shawky Hassan treads the line that separates art from object, the intentional from the incidental, and ritual performance from the infra-ordinary. Ahmed Shawky Hassan first draws the viewer into the gallery, the studio, or the museum space and then implicates them in worlds of meaning-construction that surround art. The works in the exhibition challenge the very space they occupy, the institution (both literally and figuratively), the immediate environment, and the established customs and conventions of exhibitions (12 November-10 January).
