Home: Contemporary Stories Through Artists’ Eye is a rare opportunity to view artworks by our Syrian and British artists.


This pop-up exhibition is an immediate response to the recent tragic blast in Beirut’s port that destroyed thousands of houses, leaving thousands of Syrian and Lebanese people homeless.
The exhibition will take you on a journey that crosses borders in search of a transnational identity that is multi-layered, at times displaced, yet intact and coherent. The stories and artworks are lyrical metaphors of the artist’s current circumstances, everyday experiences and dreams of homecoming, whilst raising questions about the elsewhere and the space in-between places.
