Dreams and Dystopias - East Africa at the Crossroads

Hope-Amid-the-Ruins-Guillaume-Bonn

Dreams and Dystopias explores East Africa at the crossroads through the lens of photographer Guillaume Bonn whose camera captures the essence of a people caught between two worlds to suggest an unreachable disappearing past, barely effable but through the echoes of its fragments and traces. The poignancy of a past to which one can never return, yet one which remains ever present in its landscape of deserted dreams. 

Opening 11 October, Zamana Space at the Ismaili Centre, London

The Locked Room: Four Years that Shook Art Education

Inside-The-Locked-Room

In 1969, Saint Martin’s School of Art in London undertook a radical experiment in the teaching of sculpture. Students in the so-called 'A' Course were placed together in a large white room, locked from the inside. They were not permitted to speak to each other or their instructors while in the Locked Room. Fifty years later, this exhibition   will explore, reflect upon, and reveal what really happened in the white room. 

Opening 6th December, Laure Genillard Gallery, London

Featured Writing

The Writing of Art Inspired by calligraphy

image7

Presenting work inspired by traditional arts based on Persian and Arabic script, The Writing of Art explores the plasticity between word, idea and image, traditionally  juxtaposed as discrete systems of the visual and the discursive to challenge the notion that globalisation destroys cultural  identity.

Fiona Banner 'Wp Wp Wp'

image9

Painted in black, graffiti-like on a wall outside the Longside Gallery  are the letters 'Wp Wp Wp' onomatopoeia for the sound made by helicopter blades as they whoop-whoop through the air. It is playful, mischievous, yet ominously suggestive of a sound we equate with danger, apprehension, even fear.   (ARt-The Imagined State)
