East Wing presents 'Fragile States' – Solo exhibition of work by George Awde — 迪拜 阿拉伯聯合酋長國 — 15 MAY - 25 JUN, 2015

East Wing, 12 Limestone House, DIFC, Ritz Carlton Annex, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Fragile States chronicles the transitory existence of a group of young men and boys - many of them migrant laborers, emigrants from Syria and Syrian Kurdistan living in the context of Beirut. Intermixed with these quiet intimate portraits are landscapes and still lives, which together raise questions around masculinity, citizenship, and the fragile state between adolescence and manhood.
