Event Details

Al markhiya gallery proudly presents a thought-provoking group exhibition, Elsewhere, featuring a collection of contemporary Syrian artists exploring ideas of finding a sense of home abroad.

Inviting audiences to explore their extraordinary compositions, the artists traverse the globe, carrying with them the rich tapestry of their home culture, like a second skin. Through this lens, they perceive a world of new experiences, colors, textures and people in their adopted homelands.

Yet, despite their new surroundings, the artists maintain a persistent connection to their roots. This dual existence gives birth to a distinctive vision, where the threads of memory, experience, and family ties leave their creative minds slightly askew.

The artworks presented in Elsewhere embody this in-between experience, expressing their native culture with vibrant hues of their adopted homelands. As these artists seek to redefine their identities, they endeavour to harmonize their lives, returning themselves to the rhythms of existence lived in a place that is, for them, truly elsewhere.

The exhibition runs until December 2023.
