Subversion Exhibition

Subversion is a unique group show and public programme of new and recent contemporary art that proposes to explore and rethink notions of a so called ‘modern’ and ‘Arab identity.’
Constructed in the vein of a three-act play, the show features work from eleven emerging and established artists who use autobiographical narratives combining fiction, popular culture and subversive parody to express the divisions they face as they perform multiple roles in a society which is frequently represented to the outside world in a contorted and mediated manner. Spanning an array of techniques including installation, video, photography and sculpture, the work illustrates fragments of the distorted imagination that often preoccupies the Arab world.
