Ibrahim El-Salahi: Pain Relief Drawings

  • October 7, 2022 through January 15, 2023
  • Drawing Center, New York
Ibrahim El-Salahi: Pain Relief Drawings presents nearly 300 drawings from one of the most-significant artists in African and Arab modernism. A hundred of those works drafted on the back of medicine packets, pill bottle labels, envelopes and scraps of paper over the last two years reflect El-Salahi's intricate pen-and-ink artistry and serve as a form of respite for the UK-based artist born in Sudan, who, at 91 years old, finds diversion from his chronic pain through his daily drawing practice.
