Rasheed Araeen: A Retrospective, 2017, Installation view Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, Netherlands. Photo: Peter Cox. Image courtesy Van Abbemuseum.


In Autumn 2018, BALTIC will stage Rasheed Araeen: A Retrospective, the first comprehensive survey of the artist's work, spanning more than 60 years. The exhibition, staged across BALTIC's Level 3 and Level 2 galleries, presents a body of work that has had a profound influence on generations of artists, writers and thinkers.
The exhibition is structured across five chapters: from the artist's early experiments in painting in Karachi in the 1950s and early 60s, his geometric structures produced after his arrival in London in 1964, key pieces from the 70s and 80s following Araeen's political awakening, his nine panel cruciform works from the 80s and 90s and a selection of his new geometric paintings and wall structures.

Alongside this, materials relating to Araeen's writing, editorial and curatorial projects are presented as part of an expanded artistic practice that in its scope, continues to challenge the formal, ideological and political assumptions of Eurocentric modernism.
