In Conversation: Issam Kourbaj

24 April 2024

Join us for a special event in the Kettle’s Yard house, where artist Issam Kourbaj will be in conversation with exhibition curator Guy Haywood.

Since 2011 Issam Kourbaj’s artwork has responded to the ongoing conflict in Syria, and reflects on the suffering of his fellow Syrians and the destruction of his cultural heritage. This exhibition presents key works from this period alongside a new series which explores themes of loss, memory and renewal.

The exhibition – the artist’s largest to date – will include installation, sculpture, performance and works on paper. Kourbaj will be present at intervals throughout the exhibition, which will evolve as he adds to the displays.

This listing is supplied by one of our museum partners and is not moderated by Art Fund.
