A STORY ABOUT HER
April 2 - 30 2017
Through her photographs Charlotta Sparre shares her love and passion for the Middle East and North Africa.

This exhibition explores ideas of home, delving into the meaning of place and home in an age of forced migration and immigration – of home as an internal orientation where the idea of belonging to a place may no longer exist. The artist is interested in creating artwork that examines the significance of involuntary departures from a homeland through archived material relating to the above themes, such as the map of the Sykes Picot agreement, in order to trace shifting landscapes.
LEGENDS & HEROS
March 1 - 30 2017
Zaina El Said's new exhibition is inspired from the idea of a single hero who existed since dawn of humanity. A hero who transforms in appearance but ultimately represents the same set of values and beliefs celebrated and revered by the masses. Mythological characters stand witness to this idea; there are heroes and legends that share identical characteristics, yet originate from totally different worlds and cultures.

The dome signifies a spiritual journey of peace from deep within the soul as it searches for identity and sense in this chaotic world. Hamad cites modern art, design, and architecture, as his main inspiration. He is influenced by the Bauhaus and De Stijl movements
