A show in London - there will be some small, and not so small, miniature paintings there...
P21 Gallery is proud to present Kalila wa Dimna: Ancient Tales for Troubled Times, a collaborative art exhibition and events programme that brings together academic researchers, artists, curators, and community organizations.
The exhibition is inspired by the global journeys of Kalila wa Dimna, an ancient collection of moral fables that travelled across time and space, language, religion, and culture. Through diverse creative practices from painting to digitals arts, textile and music, experienced and emerging artists and community organisations reinterpret Kalila wa Dimna chapter of ‘The Four Friends’ to address social, cultural and political issues of our times. Participants showcase pieces about finding communities of sanctuary through music and participatory art, about restoring ‘lost’ personal and collective histories through creative practice and addressing the destructive role of human actions on society and the natural ecosystem.
Join us for the opening night on 12 May, from 6pm to 9pm at P21 Gallery, 21 Chalton St, London NW1 1JD.
