In The Open | Contemporary Art from Bahrain

28 Jun – 27 Jul 2013

Contemporary Art from the Kingdom of Bahrain

In the Open was the first exhibition of its kind in the United Kingdom, bringing together a group of divergent emerging and established artists from the Kingdom of Bahrain and turning the spotlight on the eclectic expression borne of this archipelago. From sound and performance art to photography, painting, collage and drawing, the exhibition showcases some of the region’s finest talent and establishes an international platform for the presentation and proliferation of Bahraini art.

Highlights include: Jenine Sharabi’s ‘Public Displays of Affection’ series which through whimsy and charming simplicity portrays the unseen affections felt by couples in the Middle East, Hasan Hujairi's interactive sound sculpture, Camille Zakharia's photo-collages which encapsulate place, identity, and what it means to belong, and a photographic mural depicting ongoing conversations spread over Bahrain's walls, by Ghada Khunji.

The exhibition was curated by Latifa Al Khalifa and presented in partnership with the Mayor of London’s Shubak Festival and Bahrain’s Ministry of Culture.
