Said Adrus: Recaptured 2014

Mezzanine Gallery

Launch event: 8 November 2014, 6pm -9pm

Lost memories and histories are captured in this new mixed media installation by British artist Said Adrus. At the centre of this exhibition is the forgotten contribution of South Asian soldiers during the First World War, subject matter that Adrus has worked with over the past eight years. Coinciding with the WWI centenary, the exhibition pays homage to this lost chapter in history. Adrus's work explores global issues about diaspora communities and notions of Britishness in contemporary society.

Talk: During the exhibition launch, Adrus will be joined by Amna Malik to discuss the wider research around this project. Amna Malik is Senior Lecturer in Art History and Theory, at the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL. Arrive by 7pm to join this free session.

Admission: FREE
Age range: All are welcome
