The Ismaili Centre, London, UK in partnership with the Aga Khan Museum, Toronto, is delighted to announce Seeing Through Babel, a solo exhibition by the Syrian-Armenian artist Kevork Mourad.
In the Old Testament story of Babel, mankind is punished for attempting to construct a tower to heaven, an act of hubris that led God to create multiple languages so as to prevent such collusions happening again. For this exhibition, Mourad explores the story of Babel, using visual imagery as a means to connect people across the language divide.
The exhibition will be installed in The Ismaili Centre’s Zamana Space, which reopens to the public with this exhibition.
The exhibition will launch on 1 July and opening hours will be Monday to Friday from 11am-6pm. The show is free to attend and booking is not required.
