From Ear to Ear to Eye explores the acoustic lives of different cities and places across the Arab world. The exhibition is concerned with how sounds can provide evidence or testimony, and the ways in which histories and experiences are intertwined with music. The exhibition brings together installations, sculptures, films, photographs, sound works, performances and archives by 17 artists of different generations, many of whom are based in the Arab world. Participating artists include: Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Etel Adnan, Haig Aivazian, Mounira Al Sohl, Basma Alsharif, Ziad Antar, Marwa Arsanios, Ania Dabrowska, Malak Helmy, Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige, Hiwa K, Jumana Manna, Joe Namy, Setareh Shahbazi, Raed Yassin and Shirin Yousefi.

Jul 14 - Oct 7, 2018
Working with textile installation, ceramics and video, Mexican artist Pia Camil highlights the shortcomings of consumerism and globalisation through works that are playful, interactive and participatory.
The gallery space will be theatrically divided by a large curtain constructed from t-shirts that were originally manufactured in Latin America for export and then illicitly sold back to Mexico to be resold in street markets. Camil will be presenting new commissions including a usable hammock made out of discarded jeans sewn together, creating intimate and social spaces within the gallery.
The exhibition also features Camil’s ceramic masks, inspired by jewellery display busts and Carl Jung’s concept of persona – our public mask or public image – and a newly commissioned video produced in collaboration with writer Gabriela Jauregui.
