York Islamic Art Circle

Tuesday 31st January 2017


Bowland Auditorium (University of York)

You can get your free ticket at

Dream manuals, talismanic shirts, horoscopic charts and magico-medicinal bowls testify to the changing roles of divinatory practices within Islamic traditions from the medieval period to the present day. Despite critical attitudes and bans, in fact, various techniques to foretell the future and influence daily events were used by elites and ordinary people alike in order to address all sort of concerns. Dreams, Dice and Divination: Islamic Art and the Supernatural will explore the themes and debates surrounding these common yet controversial arts through the lens of art and material culture.

Francesa Leoni is the Yousef Jamrel curator of Islamic Art at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Francesa is the curator of their current exhibition "Power and Protection:IslamicArt and the Supernatural" showing until 20th January 2017.

Exhibition: ABSTRACTED MYTHOLOGIES, 5th Base Gallery, Whitechapel



ABSTRACTED MYTHOLOGIES - Transposing Cultural Memory into the Visual Present

Curated by: Michael Delacruz
5th Base Gallery, London

23 Heneage Street
London E1 5LJ
United Kingdom
December 29th - December 31st

Opening: December 29th 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The term 'cultural hegemony' has often been used to describe the assimilation into, or displacement by, one system of cultural reference by another. From antiquity to the present day, closer observation reveals less a contest of competing narratives and mythologies than a layering of symbol systemsthrough a process of interaction and dialogue. Abstracted Mythologies aims to replicate this process of transcultural synthesis through staging a similar dialogue of multiple cultural perspectives through the medium of visual art, exploring not only the interactions between foundational systems of reference but also highlightingdiffering modes of visual transposition, ranging from the non-objective to allusive figuration.

Engaging artists active throughout Europe and beyond, the initial exhibition will take place at the 5th Base Gallery, Whitechapel,London inWinter 2016 with planned follow-on exhibitions in Copenhagen, Athens, and New York.

Talk, talk, that's all you can do, with Mounira Al Solh



Open from 14 December
Private view Thursday, 15 December, 6-8pm

waterside contemporaryis pleased to presentTalk, talk, that's all you can do, with Mounira Al Solh, Oreet Ashery, Ivn Argote, Nick Hornby, Nria Gell, Nicoline van Harskamp, and Marianna Christofides.

TheMultilingual Parrotis a character in a series of anecdotes and semi-fictions IWant to Be a PartybyMounira Al Solh. The valuable bird, conversant in no fever than seven languages, was put up for sale by the artist's uncle in 1958, to help the family survive through the tensions which rocked Lebanon in the 1950s and '60s. Al Solh uses a collection of paraphernalia - heirlooms, cars, musical instruments - to gather subjective memories of a familial histories and the intertwined political events.

Al Solh's work, using video, painting, embroidery and performative gestures, brings together biography and history: the individual's experience becomes a key to speculating on wider social realities. An inherent tension plays itself out with humour, visible vulnerability, and self-knowing irony - an approach which allows the artist to take on complex and delicate issues such as nationalism or gender, putting herself, her friends and family directly on the line.
