Join us for this Valentine’s special Friday Late. We’ll be spinning classic Arabic love songs to a selection of love potion cocktails from the bar. The current exhibition The Gap Between Us by Basma Alsharif will be open after hours.
Guests will also have the opportunity to craft their own love zines taking inspiration from artist love letters, poetry and books on display. All materials will be provided.
The Gap Between Us is the first UK solo exhibition by artist and film-maker Basma Alsharif, featuring three key works from different periods of the artist’s practice. Alsharif is an L.A. based artist of Palestinian descent. Alsharif creates rich imagery, manipulating and editing original film footage, seeking to unsettle perceptions and evoke affective experiences in the viewer.
Please note that Ouroboros (2017) by Basma Alsharif will not be playing throughout the evening.
