Saloua Raouda ChoucairMore than 120 works of the Lebanese artist Saloua Raouda Choucair (b.1916) are on display at the Tate Modern this summer, many of which have never been seen before. This is the world's first major museum exhibition of the 97-year-old's extraordinary body of work. Highlighting Choucair's contribution to international modernism, this retrospective brings together paintings, sculptures and other objects made by the artist over six decades, reflecting her interests in science, mathematics and Islamic art and poetry. A pioneer of abstract art in the Middle East, Choucair is finally being recognised as an important figure in the history of global modernism.

About Tate Modern

Located along the banks of the River Thames in the former Bankside Power Station, originally designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott in 1947, the architect of Battersea Power Station, Tate Modern opened to great acclaim in 2000. Since then it has welcomed millions of visitors through its imposing doors. More about Tate Modern
