Join us for the preview of our upcoming exhibition, Above Us the Milky Way, featuring work from artists Orna Kazimi, Kubra Khademi, Mario García Torres and Erkan Özgen. The Preview takes place on Saturday 25 June 2022. from 6-8pm at Void Gallery. All welcome.


The exhibition runs until 27 August, and will be accompanied by a public programme of events and workshops for adults and children.




The title of the exhibition is taken from a novel by Fowzin Karimi that explores the complexities and the impact of war through memories, loss and notions of home. Many who are forced into exile face forced migration, and the burden of carrying the past into the present and future. The legacy of war, the repression of minorities and women, and the trauma that seeps through the generations forms the focal point of this exhibition.


More information about the exhibition can be found here.
