Common Ground is a two-day multi-disciplinary exhibition created by the Barbican's Young Visual Arts Group, a temporary collective of young artists and arts professionals facilitated by artist Jordan McKenzie and the Creative Learning Team at Barbican Guildhall. Taking the themes of the Barbican exhibition Another Kind of Life (Feb 28-May 27) as a starting point, the group of artists have explored ideas of community in a range of media including live performance, sound, moving-image, painting, photography and graphic art. Exploring ideas of inclusion, exclusion, belonging, home and heritage, the artists ask how we create common ground. 

The exhibition features work from 13 young artists: Yagiz Akin, Pietro Bardini, Beth Christlow, Cosima Cobley Carr, Ranura Edirisinghe, Joe Fear, Katie Fiore, Stephanie Francis-Shanahan, Maria Goundry, Maisie Linford, Aroob Sajjad, Moyin Saka and Natasha Thomas.
