The phrase Terms & Conditions often refers to a fixed set of guidelines at the basis of any official contract or agreement. While these extensive specifications are sometimes overlooked in everyday practice, their implementation can have quite powerful implications by dictating the precise nature of representation and interaction between people, entities and countries. The words terms and conditions taken apart from their clerical connotations convey fluid and precarious concepts such as the nature of definitions (terms) and circumstances (conditions) over time.
Tackling several conceptual veins, the exhibition observes relationships between power, control and representation and how power impacts perceptions of identity, location, history and memory. Many artists with roots in the Arab world work simultaneously across different geographic, physical and cultural contexts, making it difficult to define or constrain them to a narrow set of specifications. Contemporary art draws on a rich variety of artistic practices, enabling artists to navigate and speak within multiple contexts, undermining attempts to restrict how identity and representation are expressed.
Terms & Conditions presents an open-ended debate into how history and social realities are represented, with an emphasis on the Arab world. The exhibition draws upon seminal works from the Barjeel Art Foundation, the Abraaj Group Art Prize Collection, Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Musée national del lhistoire et des cultures de limmigration, CNHI Paris, and collections of private individuals and artists.
The catalogue provides a nuanced glimpse into the exhibition and its artists with write-ups, interviews and essays. Offering insight into the layered themes of the show, the book examines the relationships between power, control and representation, highlighting how power impacts perceptions of identity, location, history and memory with a focus on The Arab world.
