The exhibition presented the styles of different generations and the new tendencies in Arab art through paintings, drawings, engravings, ceramics, statues, and installations.

Each memory tells an intimate story; each collection presents us with the reality of containing an intimate story as well. The collection is akin to a whole in which many memories and stories of the artist, the viewer, and the collector are brought together.
