Opening is on Sunday, 2 November 2014, 6–9 pm
JAMM Art Gallery presents The Other Sky, a group exhibition of Arab and Iranian artists, across different generations, expressing a preoccupation with the politics of movement and an engagement with the aesthetics of globalisation: Movement across places, the oldest of human liberties, has been reframed in the modern era in terms of the ‘flight’ metaphor. This metaphor however is associated less with social and political liberties and more with the scientific revolution and the history of aviation. Globalisation is always ‘on flight’, steamrolling throughout the entire earth, on the wings of a plane, compressing distances and expanding human fields. Flight is a new dimension of the human conditions drawing alternative topographies of simultaneity, embedded in cosmopolitan histories.
Artists: Manal AlDowayan, Behnaz Ghashemi, Abdulrahman Katanani, Hussein Madi, Azadeh Nilchiani, Jamal Abdul Rahim and Yashar Samimi Mofakham
Exhibition is ongoing until 4 December 2014
