October 16 Sunday - October 23 Sunday

Fragments: An Exhibition by Mahmoud Obaidi — Sunday

In this exhibition, Mahmoud Obaidi retraces the 'organized chaos' that led to the destruction of Iraq, and presents a response to witnessing the city of Baghdad fall piece by piece. In his work, Obaidi recreates what has been stolen or destroyed to try to piece the city back together again.

The exhibition shows how Obaidi is grappling with the destruction of an 8,000-year-old civilization, which has been laid waste in less than a fraction of that time. The exhibition will be on from October 18, 2016 - January 30, 2017.
