Homeland Under My Nails: Mohammad Omar Khalil—Selected Prints (1965-present)

  • January 22, 2020 through April 26, 2020
  • The Mosaic Rooms, London
One of the most significant artists of his generation from Sudan and the Arab world, Mohammad Omar Khalil, born in 1936, is a painter, master printmaker and mentor who has been practicing since the 1960s. This celebration of his life's work is this is the first major UK solo exhibition of his work. The exhibition opens with a series of self-portraits, a practice that Khalil, now 83, has long experimented with as a means of self-transformation—an exploration of time in his own image. Omar Khalil's work is significant to the Arab modernist movement and to the history of International Modernism, moving across continents, seeking connections and drawing together influences from North Africa.
