On 6 April at 7:30 pm, Athier will be in conversation with Dr. Bahaa Abudaya, the curator of his latest solo exhibition at Ayyam Gallery Beirut. After Denudation opens earlier that evening with new paintings and drawings by the artist. In his latest works, Athier examines the effects of urban development on the desert terrains that lie beneath and around the expanding cities of the Gulf while also emphasising how these natural environments have inbuilt structure and design and systems of regeneration. Athier and Abudaya will discuss the concepts and formalism of the series, including how abstraction can shed light on such complex phenomena.
