Issam Kourbaj: Urgent Archive أرشيف عاجل
Since 2011 Issam Kourbaj’s artwork has responded to the ongoing conflict in Syria, and reflects on the suffering of his fellow Syrians and the destruction of his cultural heritage. This exhibition presents key works from this period alongside a new series which explores themes of loss, memory and renewal.
Megan Rooney’s (b. 1985, South Africa) first major solo exhibition in the UK will comprise all new paintings. In one of the gallery spaces at Kettle’s Yard she will paint a temporary mural directly onto the walls, and in the other, she will present new works.
