Embodying Marcel Duchamp's words that art is a game between all people of all periods, 'Do It' features more than 70 artists' instructions, in both English and Arabic, that anyone can use to make a new work of art. Since its inception in 1993, Hans Ulrich Obrist's multiplatform 'Do It' project has been realized in more than 50 locations worldwide. 'Do It' collects new instructions commissioned for the exhibition's most recent iteration organized by Sharjah Art Foundation, including those of artists Adel Abdessemed, Etel Adnan, Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, Mona Hatoum and Jalal Toufic. Essays by Kaelen Wilson-Goldie and Adila Laïdi-Hanieh and a conversation between co-curators Hoor Al Qasimi and Obrist, which considers the relevance of 'Do It' within the context of the Arabic-speaking world, accompany these instructions.
