Ali Cherri is taking part in the exhbition “Orientalism, The construction of images of the Near East and of North Africa (1800-1956)” at IVAM, l’Institut Valencià d’Art Modern, cur. Rogelio López Cuenca and Sergio Rubira.
“This exhibition seeks to analyse and question some of those commonplaces in the images that were produced between the time of the Napoleonic campaign in Egypt and Syria (1798-1801) and 1956, the year when Morocco and Tunisia gained their independence. The show highlights the way in which avant-garde movements established relationships with Oriental “exoticism” in their attempt to break away from the canon of tradition.”

Ali Cherri participates in the collective exhibition La vie des tables at the Centre d’art contemporain d’Ivry – le Crédac, coproduced by Festival d’Automne à Paris, cur. Claire Le Restif.
“Whether in the kitchen, workshop or office, tables embody the place where intuitions take shape and are sometimes the only place where artists can work. La vie des tables pays tribute to this relationship with the “work table” – a place of refuge, play-area and obligatory passing-place.”
