As part of Crossings: community and refuge, we’re delighted to welcome Syrian-born, Cambridge-based visual artist Issam Kourbaj to Shire Hall Museum.

In this talk, Issam will discuss his artwork, performances and collaborations in response to the ongoing Syrian conflict and about the destruction on his homeland and cultural heritage since March 2011.

Issam’s artwork, Dark Water, Burning World, feature in Shire Hall Museum’s latest exhibition Crossings: community and refuge. 

Issam will be in conversation with Jill Cook, Curator at the British Museum.
