It doesn’t even feel right thinking about celebrating Eid next week with the state of the dunya like this.
A little known law that requires all newly built museums in Italy to allocate a percentage of their budget to a public sculpture led to the construction of a remarkable building in Port Sudan two years ago. Visual artist Massimo Grimaldi entered a sculpture competition for the newly built National Museum of the 21st Century Arts (MAXXI) in Rome with a novel concept. In a break from tradition, he suggested that the prize money be used to build a clinic in Sudan and its progress screened onto the exterior walls of the museum. Equal to two per cent of the museum’s budget, this humanist gesture would constitute as its public sculpture. Grimaldi won the prize and duly donated the proceeds to Emergency, an Italian NGO who built and now run the remarkable Port Sudan Pediatric Centre
