This two-storey architect-designed exhibition space on Chalton Street displays contemporary Middle Eastern and Arab art with a special focus on Palestine. It regularly hosts workshops, lectures, readings and film screenings, while also boasting a café and reference library.
Currently worth catching is Displaced, curated by the Oxford-based CARY (Contemporary Arts Research Unit). Upstairs on the ground floor is a group whose work evokes a wide range of responses to the title theme, including photography, video, painting, prints, sculpture, and an accumulative installation of small figurines made by the public. (In a nice touch, visitors are invited to create and add their own little person to the installation.)
Meanwhile, downstairs, Alissar McCreary presents the culmination of her seven-year research into her experience of displacement as a Lebanese refugee.
