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.

This is box title
Free entry, until 10th February. Open Tues, Thurs, Fri 12pm-6pm (Wed 8pm, Sat 12pm-4pm), 21-27 Chalton Street, NW1. More info here.
