In The City

About

P21 Gallery is excited to present In the City, an absorbing graphic design and sound art exhibition which provides a rare glimpse into four Arab cities. The exhibition will be a first of its kind in London to showcase a series of commissioned and pre-existing works from an eclectic line up of established and emerging Arab designers, illustrators, video, and sound artists.
In the City transports the audience through four enigmatic, but overlooked Arab cities ' Alexandria, Algiers, Baghdad and Nablus ' by recapturing and reimagining elements of those cities. The collection explores each city's panorama through their streets, landmarks, people, signage, and sounds. Every room contains elements borrowed from the city it represents, forming a variety of installations that will entice interaction between the audience and the work.
The cultural diversity of the Arab world is increasingly belied by reductive media coverage of the region. This exhibition seeks to reclaim that narrative by inviting the audience to look beyond the headlines, through the collective imaginations of Arabs themselves.
