Method to the Madness
Cuadro’s exhibition titled “Method to the Madness” features artists Jowhara AlSaud (Saudi Arabia), Noor Al Suwaidi (UAE), Nadine Kanso (Lebanon), and Jaffar Al Oraibi (Bahrain). The Method to the Madness education program led by Roberto Lopardo (US) take place until April 23, 2012.
In the Method to the Madness exhibition, Cuadro (Dubai) and CAP Kuwait delve into the issue of subjectivity in the judgment of art. The following questions are addressed:
When is an artwork complete? How can we better understand the artistic process and evolution? Is there a method to the madness?
The exhibition displays finished works by contemporary Middle Eastern artists, alongside the studies representing the different stages that lead to the final work. Peripheral materials typically found in an artist’s studio are displayed as well, giving an comprehensive view of the artistic evolution. Viewers are invited to step into the mind of the artist and experience the work through the choices taken to make the art.
