We spoke to H.R.H. Princess Wijdan Bint Fawaz Al-Hashemi, founder of the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, about arab art, her identity as an artist, and the exhibition  Between Desert and Sea – A Selection from the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, which can be seen at Pera Museum until 21 April 2013.

The works of artists from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, and Tunisia reflect the questions posed by the artists between past and present; between creativity and the real world. The exhibition presents the styles of different generations and the new tendencies in Arab art through paintings, drawings, engravings, ceramics, statues, and installations.
