Live Ideas: An Evening with Sultan Sooud Al-Qassemi (UAE)
Presented in Partnership with Goethe-Institut New York
A conversation with one of today’s most prolific contemporary art collectors and cultural voices. In addition to his role as political commentator for MSNBC, CNN and Bloomberg TV, Al Qassemi emerged among the foremost voices translating the events of the ‘Arab Spring’ across social media, recognized by TIME Magazine for harnessing its tools to translate events in real time for a worldwide audience. As founder of the Sharjah-based Barjeel Art Foundation he supports some of the Arab world’s most vital new voices through exhibitions locally and internationally, and has risen to become one of the most influential and oft-discussed collectors of politically engaged art in the world.
