A collective art exhibition featuring works and reflections by all of the artists who have taken up residency in the art studio inside our Room to Breathe exhibition.

About

Borderless is a collective art exhibition curated by visual artist and educator Dima Karout and featuring all of the artists who have taken up residency in the art studio inside our Room to Breathe exhibition.

Each month a different artist made this studio their own, creating art and sharing fragments of the journey they made across many borders – physical, cultural, linguistic – before landing in London. Over six months, the walls of this room have shown the unique work of Dima KaroutHabib SadatThe New Art StudioCeyda OskayShorsh Saleh and Belén L. Yáñez.

Through meet-the-artist sessions, educational workshops and participatory artwork, the artists have shared their knowledge and stories with everyone who stepped into their universe. This space has hosted meaningful and sincere conversations, and proven that it is always possible to make connections through art. It has brought the artists closer to the public and inspired many people to uncover their creativity.

This final exhibition combines various art mediums and reflects on how the artists transformed their personal experiences in crossing borders into pieces of art, to convey a wider but intimate picture. It also focuses on how, through their art practice, the artists perceived the metaphor of borders, fought against division, and stood up for cultural diversity and inclusion.

There will be a special opening and a curator talk hosted by Dima Karout, in the presence of all of the artists, on Thursday 13 June from 6pm–9pm (click here for more info and to register).

We regret that the venue for this event is not fully accessible – it is located on the first floor with no step-free access.
