Lahd Gallery is celebrating its first year in London with a review exhibition showcasing artworks from Kuwait, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
Launching on 8 July 2011, the exhibition will feature a rolling programme of its best pieces highlighting the breadth of the region's talents and communities often rejecting stereotypes and providing an eye-opening view into the lives and thoughts of people within Arabic countries.
The featured artists will include contemporary Pop Art duo Hamad & Ali; Kuwaiti artist Shurooq Amin who shows us the secret world of the Gulf's society girls where each image is shot with a bullet from a M16 sniper rifle; Nabeela Al Khayer from Bahrain with her daring use of colours and Arabic poetry; and Tagreed Al Bagshi from Saudi Arabic whose self portraits combine mediation, rebellion, stillness and weakness.
