To understand any society look first to the outsiders...This monograph will tell the story of one of Saudi Arabia's most talked about contemporary artists. Abdulnasser Gharem stands apart in so many ways. He is a soldier and an artist. He is widely regarded as a pioneer in the region for his firebrand intellectual courage and innovative use of materials. Even though his work is in the collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Victoria & Albert Museum, he does not produce art for the sake of basking in its reflected glory but for bringing about change.
Henry Hemming's publications include Together: How Small Groups Achieve Big Things, Misadventure in the Middle East, In Search of the English Eccentric, Edge of Arabia: Contemporary Art from Saudi Arabia, and Offscreen: Four Young Artists in the Middle East.
