We take a look back at a year filled with exciting fairs, biennials, and retrospectives such as Jasper Johns, the late Hassan Sharif, Fahrelnissa Zeid and Jean-Michel Basquiat. We remember the greatest accomplishments of Middle Eastern artists in 2017, visit Jenny Holzer’s exhibits at Louvre Abu Dhabi but also take a look at the rising stars as well as featuring artists from North America and South Africa. Reviews this issue include Saatchi gallery’s exposé of 25 years of Russian protest art, an unusual pairing of Marcel Duchamp and Salvador Dalí at London’s Royal Academy of Art, Tarek Al-Ghoussein’s poetics of space and the Sharjah Biennial at its last stop in Beirut.
