Exhibition launch at Malja Sat 15-Sat 29
Curators Leon D and Tamadher are launching a new group exhibition at Malja in Amwaj Islands on this night from 7pm to 9pm. The theme is based around synaesthesia, a neurological phenomenon meaning ‘joined perception’ and happens when one sense is perceived at the same time as another. For instance, people can see colours when hearing music, or taste flavours while reading books. This exhibition is a result of a long-term workshop at Malja that has allowed the participating artists to develop their ideas. Visit www.maljabahrain.com.
