Call for Entries to Middle Eastern art exhibition in London






Thread of Light is a group art exhibition bringing together the work of

contemporary Middle Eastern artists, at P21 Gallery London, for six

weeks as of May 2017.

In response to the recent events of our times, an increasingly

stereotypical imagery is being used to depict the peoples of the

Middle East. This exhibition provides the opportunity to showcase

how artists whose origins are from the region find strength, peace or

play in these times of conflict in the Middle East. The intention is to

provide an alternative image or work of art to challenge the

oversimplified Middle Eastern identity.

The brief of the show can be interpreted by the literal or figurative

meaning of the words that make up the title Thread of Light. Artists

can submit work with a reference to light, whether in the literal sense

as a direct source of illumination, less directly through photography

and moving image or metaphorically in any medium. Transparency,

layering, shadows and volume all speak of light.
