Tasawar Bashir is an architect and artist. In his work he strives to explore the notion of the sacred in dazzlingly strange ways.

Art and Faith Lab is not a standard exhibition; instead the artist is using the Main Gallery as an experimental lab space to present some of his artistic concerns which explore ideas of art, faith and inner city realities. Most importantly, Tasawar will engage members of the public and local artists to contribute to the work on show in the gallery.

The Lab is intended to be an informal space to present and test ideas, gain feedback from friends and colleagues about overcoming the difficulty of talking about God and how the history of this search tells us something important about the human condition and nature of our aspirations.
