A new, groundbreaking exhibition of Bahraini artists, “Media Lab”, will open at the gallery on the 27th of April and will run through the 11th of May. The participants in the show, all of them young artists without prior experience with digital media, were introduced to the format through a combination of artistic concept with sound and image. Ten beautiful short video pieces will be showcased at the opening via two wide screen monitors. Participant artists are Zuhair Al Saeed, Abdulla Naji, Tamara Al Pachachi, Jehan Saleh, Maryam Noaimi, Marwa Al Khalifa, Linda Mattar, Somaya AbdulGhani, Mohammed Saleh and Dalal AlKhuzai. This exhibition is part of the second edition of the ALP program which Albareh pioneered last year and led in its second edition to renowned artist Nedim Kufi. The show will also feature art books that were created in an earlier workshop titled “The Concept of a Handbook”.
