'The Libyan' hits London
The Libyan highlights the work of eight contemporary Libyan artists aged 24 - 67 until 30 November.
Curated by Noon Art and supported by the British Council, the exhibition consists of sculptures, painings, photography, installations and short film screenings, inviting the viewer to explore the artistic trends in Libya and get a feel for the Libyan lifestyle and culture.
Noon Arts calls the exhibition "colourful and exotic" and that it challenges many "preconceptions regarding a lack of creativity coming from this newly-liberated and emerging free democracy."
Exhibiting artists are painters Najla Shawket Fitouri, Muktar Alshrief and Yousef Fetis; artists Mohammed Albadri and Mohammad Bin Lamin; installation artist and sculptor Hadia Gana; photographer Faten Baaba; photographer and filmmaker Naziha Arebi.
20 - 30 November
