Hamed Abdalla was a key figure in Egyptian modernism and world art. His experimental inventions reflected over thirty years of political and philosophical debate in the Arab world and also gave shape to an exiled modernism: to the cities where he lived and worked (Cairo, Copenhagen, Paris) and the art movements he came into contact with (CoBrA, lettrism, etc.). Published on the occasion of the eponymous exhibition at The Mosaic Rooms, London, this publication examines the place of Abdalla in transnational modern art history. Mobilizing the personal archives and library of the artist, Arabecedaire reflects on Abdalla's journeys and influences, bringing to light a vast and rich body of material which guided his painting practice.
