DisPlaced Exhibition

DisPLACED: Curated by the Contemporary Arts ReSearch Unit (CARO), this collective show brings together artists whose work evokes a range of responses to the working theme of ‘disPLACED’. It features photography, video, painting, prints, sculpture, as well as an accumulative installation of small figurines made by the public, to which visitors are invited to create and add their own little person. Whilst another section of the exhibition will be solely dedicated to the work of Alissar McCreary, who presents the culmination of a seven-year research into the experience of displacement as a Lebanese refugee. Exploring the reciprocity between art, active participation and traced memories of displacement, she also utilises the American philosopher and artist David Abram's term of 'sensorial empathy', by looking into how it takes place and how it might affect the viewer’s perception of the displacement which is happening every day to millions of people in the world. Taking place 20 January-10 February, 2018 at the P21 Gallery, 21-27 Chalton Street, London NW1 1JD​.
