Tints of Resilience is a collective exhibition bringing together the works of 11 international artists in a rich tapestry of visual artworks, photography, poetry and film, to explore the potential of art in developing resilience in zones of conflict.
In times of war, life is interrupted and individuals find themselves forcibly alienated from their lands, traditions, and communities. This three-week exhibition places art at the heart of adversity, examining its ability to reconnect and maintain the bonds with home, people, and tradition.
The artists, currently or previously living in the Middle East, share their experiences in art-making and using art to cope with war, asylum, injury and search for identity. They present both individual explorations and artistic collaborations with refugee children, social workers, and art therapists.
The gallery will also host events, from a calligraphy performance to a seminar on art therapy. Check the Facebook page for information.
