    Sur les traces de la Peinture Contemporaine

    Tunisian Contemporary Painting

    Elmarsa Gallery presents Sur les traces de la Peinture Contemporaine (Tunisian Contemporary Painting), a selection of 8 Tunisian artists who are getting a prominent presence in the contemporary art world over the past decade. The exhibition will take an intimate look at the work of eight influential figures: Halim Karabibene, Rym Karoui, Feryel Lakhdar, Asma M'Naouar, Emna Masmoudi, Amel Bennys, Lamine Sassi and Héla Ammar. Not defined by a particular artistic school or movement, these artists and their distinct oeuvre will be brought together in a presentation of unique talent from Tunisia. Sur les traces de la Peinture Contemporaine is a continuation of the gallery's approach of articulating key moments in contemporary Tunisian art. Previous group exhibitions include Art Connections: Contemporary Arab Artists (2008) and Mémoire de Demain (2006). Retrospectives of Tunisian painting such as Regard sur la Tunisie (2005) and A Tunisian Retrospective (2006), in addition to the program of solo exhibitions presenting Tunisian contemporary artists throughout the year, have brought into focus both major Tunisian artists and emerging talents. Presenting Tunisia's most vibrant and challenging work to the gallery's audience, the exhibition will highlight the nation's current talents in contemporary painting.
