We’re delighted to present South East London-based artist Mohammed Adel’s exhibition is inspired by ideas of existence and remembrance in partnership with Brighton Festival.

Mohammed Adel’s paintings offer a window into the personal nuances of British-Bengali identity. He pairs family albums and imagery, notions of culture and space with ambiguity, intangibility and awkwardness.

Using Adel’s home as a reference, his works bring home the tensions between the familiar and the distant, the personal and the universal. They reflect the gap that exists between identities, the difference between remembering details and trying to imagine yourself into spaces that were once a lived reality.

Opening times: Wed–Fri 12–5pm, Sat 12–4pm
Address: 6 Dorset Place, Brighton, BN2 1ST

Free admission, all welcome.

Established in 1967, Brighton Festival is the largest annual curated multi-arts festival in England. The Festival is a celebration of music, theatre, dance, circus, art, film, literature, debate, outdoor and family events – taking place in familiar and unusual locations across Brighton, Hove and Sussex for three weeks every May. Since 2009 Brighton Festival has invited guest directors to work with us, creating a unique lens through which to experience the festival programme. We’ve worked with some inspiring and internationally significant Guest Directors from Anish Kapoor to Laurie Anderson; Ali Smith to Lemn Sissay; Brian Eno to Kae Tempest. The 2023 Guest Director is Nabihah Iqbal.
