Intersectionality and Internal Exile: Art, Identity and Acceptance


Friday 23rd August 2019 | 19:00 - 20:30


To conclude the Resilience Exile Mutation (REM) at P21 Gallery we will be discussing the exhibition’s founding sentiment “Internal Exile”. What is it? Who does it affect? Why and what can we do about it? Our panel - featuring both Dema One and Rayan El Nayal this time alongside Aser El Saqqa, managing and creative director of Arts Canteen - will discuss how artists and curators can be defined (or not) by their identity whether willingly or not. How we, as a society, define identity and our relation to it and how that relates to an audience.
