|Abstract or Description:||
The exhibition was the outcome of a two year project, involving a residency programme designed and delivered by Professor David Rayson with the support of the British Council in Kuwait, and culminated in the UK debut show of 13 emerging Kuwait artists who all work in a direct response to living in Kuwait and their work explores the Kuwait landscape in its broadest and most expansive sense.
This is the culmination of a large group of Kuwait artists working with the British Council, The Royal College of Art and Kuwait’s Contemporary Art Platform through a series of residency seminars and presentations organised by the international curator Alia Farid Abdal a graduate from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Professor David Rayson, Head of Painting at the Royal College of Art being supported by three MA students from the RCA’s Painting programme.
The exhibition includes an illustrated publication with texts by the British Council’s Andrew Glass, Aseel Al Yaqoub one of the artists in the exhibition, and an essay by Professor David Rayson.
