Ilham Exhibition

This group exhibition took place at the Museum of Islamic Art, Doha, Qatar, as a result of a collaboration between the British Council and Shape Arts.  It was a fantastic opportunity for me - with a three week residency in Doha to explore the 80,000 objects in the MIA (a lot of them, anyway!), and create new work in response to what inspired me.  Meeting and mixing with other leading artists such as Rachel Gadsden, Jason Wilsher-Mills, Juan delGado and Safiya Al Bahlani was an inspiration by itself, as well as making new friends from the Middle East, who I hope to work with again in the future. An excerpt of a documentary of the Definitely Able conference can be seen here. My special thanks go to Wasseem and his team at the British Council for all their support, and to Shape Arts who made it happen, including the curation of the final show.  Read my blog on my experiences here.
