newmuseum: Suha Traboulsi, Untitled, 1943–49, on view on the Fifth Floor of “Here and Elsewhere.” The works exhibited are from the 1940s, marking Suha Traboulsi’s first departure from conventional methods of painting to more conceptual portraits illustrated using ink or even ballpoint pen on paper. In these works, brightly colored and oddly offset, fragmented shapes appear as if stenciled and digitally manipulated—in line with the minimalist aesthetic soon to prevail internationally, yet uncannily ahead of their time.
