19th September – 13th December 2020
(extended to January 2021)
The first Brent Biennial comes to The Library at Willesden Green.
The Library at Willesden Green presents two large scale works by artist Rasheed Araeen responding to its physical spaces, and its civic role as a space for research, cultural discourse and exchange.
An accompanying exhibition at the Willesden gallery curated by Rebecca Heald displays a selection of geometric paintings and drawings that reference and pay homage to Arabic poets and philosophers situated in non-western modernities and thought. The works highlight the breadth of Araeen’s rich art practice, and the significant contributions he has made to how we view, discuss and position ourselves in relation to art and its histories.
