"Construction workers in their living quarters. Seen in this image is a window salvaged from the old city. I became fascinated by these artifacts and collected them to realize the large installation Mecca Windows, on view in this exhibition." —#AhmedMater #أحمدماطر

"This cafe is in Al‘Awali, outside Mecca, on the road to Taif. I’ve spent a lot of time here, and many people gather together to relax, watch soccer, and drink tea." —#AhmedMater #أحمدماطر

Ahmed Mater’s brilliant, funny, touching, too-enormous-to-contemplate Leaves Fall In All Seasons, a 2013 video of the rebuilding of Mecca comprising cellphone footage of workers shot by workers themselves to send home to their families or post to YouTube. Their pride in building this holy site made me think of the New Deal (completely different as it is) and what once meant to our people to be invested in building something that had meaning. Midway through a worker performs a death-defying feat as he accompanies the crescent to the top of the Royal Clock Tower, and crowds stop to watch him. #ahmedmater @brooklynmuseum

“Every one of Al Qasimi’s images parceled out a story, a drama, a political condition, or a civilizational dilemma, detail by detail, the longer you stayed to look.”—Kaelen Wilson-Goldie on Farah Al-Qasimi’s practice in the February issue of @artforum

Join Farah at the @brooklynmuseum from 2:00 - 3:00 PM on February 10 for #ArtistsEye where she will offer her perspective in the special exhibition #AhmedMater. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
