Re-Imagine Other. The Art of Empathy - Art, Provocation, Discussion
A multi-media art installation showcases work by artists Mohsen Keiany, Matt Parker and Mohammed Ali, all of which are responses to Dr James Hodkinson's research into themes of representation, oppositionality and empathy with a particular focus on Islam. The installation will be located in St Michael's House, Coventry Cathedral, and in the outdoor spaces around the cathedral. There will be an open, a round-table discussion with artists, community leaders, academics and the public - exploring how the art unlocks conversation around the themes presented, and this will followed by Iftar (breaking of Ramadan fast) for all faiths.
The event is free - but book tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/re-imagining-the-opposition-the-art-of-empathy-tickets-61928559990?aff=efbeventtix&fbclid=IwAR0V_morvOoc8DeXVVO6uq8kq-Rd6u9NpuQo6yZ-GPCmQqDpUfTB05nXFNs
