Exhibitions

We are thrilled to be bringing a series of exceptional exhibitions to JW3 this season:


Sun 4 June - Weds 28 June


Moments of Expulsion

Free

Sheets of distressed canvas suspended from rusted butcher hooks, torn scraps of fabric, twisted corroded metal and remnants of domestic life; Jo Scorah’s sculptures explore the emotional impact of conflict and displacement, the destruction of home and the search for refuge. A descendent of Syrian Jews forced leave Aleppo in the 1920s due to persecution, Scorah draws parallels between the disintegration of culture, community and home experienced by her grandparents and the present day assault on Aleppo and its resultant migration crisis. In partnership with London Festival of Architecture 2017


Sun 4 June - Sun 18 June


The Giant Dolls’ House Project

Free

An ongoing collaborative arts project, this installation is comprised of a collection of single-room dolls’ houses created inside empty shoeboxes. No constraints are placed on what participants can do within their box so that each room acts as a personal notion of domestic space, encapsulating the dreams and memories of its creator. The shoeboxes are brought together and interconnected with ropes, ladders and ramps to form a community, a patchwork of ideas, shapes and patterns, which reflects the diversity of every individual’s expression of home. The curator of the project is Dr. Catja de Haas, and Lala Thorpe of Artescape has collaborated on the installation.

We welcome your participation in this project – whatever your age, ideas or artistic ability. The joy of the project is mass involvement, so please download the Call For Participation and feel free to email will@jw3.org.uk for more details.

Higher View: From Aleppo to Jerusalem

Free

Ezri Tarazi uses the form of the coffee table to explore the multi-layered histories and cultures of his home city, Jerusalem. Through this everyday object, a symbol of hospitality, friendship and sharing, Tarazi considers the city through its topography, boundaries, archaeology, social complexity and his own family’s journey to Jerusalem from Aleppo. Using a variety of mediums, materials and conceptual approaches, the works come together to investigate this ancient, complex ever-shifting city. Exhibited alongside will be works by Haim Parnas from his Sincere Objects series, combining everyday objects with found sculptural materials and vessels by Reddish studio.Originally exhibited at the Tower of David Museum of the History of Jerusalem.
