Join the Mosaic Rooms and Shubbak Festival for the opening of The Mosaic Rooms’ new exhibition, Shift. The opening is the launch event for Shubbak Festival 2017, London’s biggest biennial festival of contemporary Arab Culture.
In Shift three young female artists from Saudi Arabia respond to their experiences of accelerated change in their country. Join artists Dana Awartani, Zahrah Al-Ghamdi and Reem Al-Nasser for the opening of this, their debut exhibition in the UK. The exhibition will give timely insight into some of the exciting art practices currently emerging on the young contemporary Saudi Arabian art scene.
The evening will also mark the launch of Shubbak Festival 2017. Shubbak has become a key moment in the arts calendar of the UK and the Arab World, bringing new and unexpected voices alongside established artists to new audiences every two years. This year’s festival takes place in London from 1 – 16 July 2017.
