A season blending contemporary visual arts, theatre, music, design, films and words from and about Sudan

24th March – 6th May 2017

P21 Gallery
21 Chalton St, Kings Cross,
London NW1 1JD

OPENING HOURS | Tuesday, Thursday & Friday 12:00hr-18:00hr, Wednesday 12:00hr-20:00hr, Saturday 12:00hr-16:00hr

The project will include an interdisciplinary art exhibition, film screenings, talks, events and an educational outreach programme that expose a mix of voices and new perspectives for understanding the Sudanese society and cultures. It will stage an unprecedented and rich artistic portrait of Sudan on an international scale.

Sudan: Emergence of Singularities is the first and most exciting Sudanese contemporary art exhibition in the UK and in the heart of London Kings Cross from established and emerging artists, writers and intellectuals as well as special guests whose works are related to Sudan.

Curated by Frederique Cifuentes, the programme will examine the artistic development of Sudan, a country, which is often ignored by the general media, art critics and galleries in the UK and worldwide and unknown to the general public. Working with some of the artists has shaped her choice for the exhibition catalogue in addition to new discoveries and recommendations from dear friends and experts. Her experience as an artist in Sudan has certainly influenced her own perception of that country too.
Artists and intellectuals are the best source to understand the social dynamics of a country.

Sudan: Emergence of Singularities is a tribute to the vitality and diversity of a country and its people who deserve a brighter tomorrow. The project is the culmination of trusted and long-term professional relationships between the artists, the curator and partners. This unique venture will act as catalyst for building sustainable and large-scale partnerships among UK, MENA and Sub-Sahara Africa creative economy actors.

P21 Gallery

The P21 Gallery is an independent London-based non-profit organisation established to promote contemporary Middle Eastern and Arab identities by focusing on their art and culture with distinct focus on Palestine. The work of artists in this and in neigh- bouring regions is celebrated for its candor and innovation in the global art forums, however much of its manifestations cannot always find an audience in the West; such work is necessary, if not essential, to create a much needed dialogue between these artists and the wider global artistic community whose public remains increasingly interested in the art from such a complex and diversified region.
