The Mosaic Rooms are a non-profit art gallery and bookshop dedicated to supporting and promoting contemporary culture from the Arab world and beyond in London. We do this through our free contemporary art exhibitions, our multidisciplinary events (including film screenings, current affairs talks, book launches and more) artist residencies and learning & engagement programme.
We work in partnership with local, national and international organisations to disseminate our combined arts programme to the widest possible audience – in London and beyond. Our previous collaborations include partnerships with The British Museum, ICA, Shubbak Festival, London Design Festival and London Festival of Architecture, amongst many others.
We believe in the importance of creating a cultural space that presents new thinking and daring creativity, illuminates ideas, inspires understanding, and interrogates contemporary issues. Our vision is for a London audience with a more informed, engaged and critical understanding of Arab culture and society.
We are a non-party political, non-religious organisation, and we are a project of the A. M. Qattan Foundation, a registered charity number 1029450.
“One of London’s hidden gems… [The Mosaic Rooms] hosts a diverse range of activities from all around the greater Middle East, and is used as a hub for exhibitions, literary events, supper clubs, charity auctions, and much more.” (Roxane Zand, Deputy Chairman at Sotheby’s )
“a succinct, intelligent focus on the Arab world has been unfolding at The Mosaic Rooms gallery in Earls Court since 2008…” (Rachel Spence, Financial Times)
