Curation: "the art of integrating art works in the space they live in"
'Thread of Light' Art Exhibition:
This exhibition was born from the need to tell a story focused on the lives and creativity of the people of the Middle East... by showcasing the talent of emerging and established artists. What I looked for whilst selecting them is a highly individual, subtle voice commenting on what is happening in the region today. As Head Curator and exhibiting artist, I brought together established artists such as Hassan Hajjaj, Hanaa Malallah and Kennardphillips with more emerging artists, in translating this concept over 300m2 at the P21 Gallery London.
In providing a window to these creative minds the exhibition succeeded in providing an alternative image and story to how the region is often stereotyped by the media and Hollywood.
