Mosaic Initiative & P21 Gallery present #withoutwords, an exhibition showcasing fine art and visual installations from emerging Syrian artists influenced by the desperate humanitarian situation in Syria and the struggle of their people for freedom. Taking place at London’s P21 Gallery and open to the public from June 27 running until September 01, the exhibition features a mix of paintings, photography, metalwork, installations, political cartoons and sculptures.
Some of the exhibited work has been smuggled out of Syria and will be exhibited abroad for the first time. Other pieces have been collected from Lebanon or Jordan or made in the refugee camps of Turkey. Political cartoonist Ali Ferzat, Syria’s ‘artist of the people’ and Time Magazine’s ‘100 most influential people of 2012’, will be visiting the exhibition in August to discuss the impact of his work in Syria and within the wider context of the Arab uprising.
Other artists whose work will be on display include: Ali Ferzat, Amjad Wardeh, Fadi Al Jabour, Hamid Sulaiman, Hazar Bakbachi-Henriot, Jalal Maghout, Khaled Abdulwahed, Lens Young Collective, Momtaz Shouaib, Philip Horani, Ramez Bakir, Ramia Obaid, Ronak Ahmed, Samer Saen Eldahr, Tarek Tuma, Zaria Zardasht, and Anonymous
In August, Mosaic Initiative will host a public auction of the works on display with funds raised shared between Mosaic Initiative’s aid relief work and the artists.
