Gazelli Art House, London is proud to present our upcoming show bahith (seeker in Arabic), the first exhibition of a series that will look at the historic identities of countries undergoing significant socio-political and economic change.

Through exploring the notion of national identity in the East (encompassing the Caucasus, Middle East and West Asia) and the influences of Western beliefs, bahith aims to address the inherent contradictions in retaining one’s self-identity whilst adapting to a new age of ideas and beliefs.

Exhibiting artists include Amir Khojasteh (@amir__khojasteh), Basma AlSharif (#basmaalsharif), Farhad Farzaliyev (@farzalifarhad), Ghasemi Brothers (@ghasemibrothers), Naqsh Collective (@naqshcollective), and Orkhan Huseynov (#orkhanhuseynov)
