The concept and curation of the IN BETWEEN art exhibition is the product of a collaboration between two women artists, who happen to be an Arab and an Israeli. Asmaa Alanbari and Eden Lazaness bring together artists from the UK and the Middle East, amongst other places. It is a subtle but assertive demonstration that art and life are stronger than conflict and extremism.
The artworks are about going beyond boundaries. We are all on a personal journey, from where we are now to where we would like to get to. The interesting part is the state of in between, the crossing over, the spaces and places we go through in order to get somewhere better. The types of boundaries addressed in the show range from cultural to physical and the psychological. The show embraces the many mediums art can take, from painting to video, sculpture and installation.
