Curator-led tour of UK's premier exhibition dedicated to Saudi women artists

5 July 2017 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Join Us for the UK’s premier exhibition dedicated to Saudi women artists.

Shift, which opens next month at The Mosaic Rooms in South Kensington, explores the place of memory and heritage against a rapidly changing culture. This groundbreaking exhibition features Dana Awartani (Awartani uses traditional craft techniques to produce contemporary multi-media works.  Her work has been shown at the Venice Biennale amongst other places), Zahrah Al-Ghamdi (Al-Ghamdi’s work explores memory and the past in traditional architecture. She will also be creating a new temporary installation in the Great Court of the British Museum on 2 July.) and Reem Al-Nasser (Al-Nasser observes themes of movement and mobility and cultural change).  Rachael Jarvis, Director of The Mosaic Rooms, will take us around this engaging exhibition, which is being presented in association with Shubbak, London’s biennial festival of contemporary Arab culture.

For anyone who has not yet visited The Mosaic Rooms, this is wonderful opportunity to get to know an oasis of Arab culture in the middle of London.
