Berrada is the curator of "seepage/ritual," a group show of work springing from the 2017 Abraaj Group Prize and shown on site at Art Dubai, the emirate's yearly art fair.The Abraaj show is unique this year in that all its exhibiting artists are women. Unlike the past few editions of the exhibition – which have featured a single new work by the winning artist, set in the context of older works by the runners-up – all the exhibiting artists here are showing at least one new, or newly conceived, piece.Begum herself is showing three new pieces (two paintings and a sculpture) in the group show. The first work visible in the exhibition space is Sara Abu Abdallah's "Mornings of Hope," 2017, a five-minute-long looping video showing scenes of domestic intimacy and confinement on five circular screens.Rather, Berrada and his four artists fill the book's five discrete sections with texts, images and pullout elements that are either free-standing works or lyrical reflections upon the artists' work and practices.Berrada has penned a page of text introducing the artists' work and placing them in the context of the exhibition itself.
Oum Kulthum, post-Arab Spring
Underground song, dance, revelry
A migration tale restored for now
