Room to breathe exhibition
Ansar Ahmed Ullah || London GBnews ||
Open the door, put down your suitcase, take off your coat, let the outside world fade away. This is where it begins. A room that you can start to call a home. A room to breathe.
Room to Breathe is an immersive experience inviting you to discover stories from generations of new arrivals to Britain. Journey through a series of rooms filled with personal narratives and objects that bring to life the struggles, joys, creativity and resilience of living in a new land.
Explore rooms to sleep, eat, create and meet. Make these rooms your own. Open drawers, look through cupboards, settle into an armchair. Contribute your story and make connections to the past and present.
Room to Breathe will serve as a setting for a series of residencies by migrant artists, who will be invited to use one part of the exhibition space as their studio. Each artist will host a series of workshops during their residency and works created by all artists in residence will be displayed as part of a final group exhibition in summer 2019.
The exhibition is at the Migration Museum, Lambeth High Street, South London and open till summer 2019, Thursdays 12-8pm & Friday to Sunday 12-6pm. Admission is free.
