ART and Exhibitions

Bell, Lucy, Coventry Evening Telegraph (England)

A fresh look at Asian art made in Britain

Fresh Masaala ( to Feb 26) and Stealing Beauty (to March 11) The Mead Gallery, the Arts Centre, Warwick University, Coventry. Open Mon to Sat, noon to 9pm. Closed Sundays. Free

ACTRESS and comedienne Nina Wadia, from radio and TV comedy Goodness Gracious Me, makes a special guest appearance at the Arts Centre tonight to launch two new exhibitions.

The launch party (from 6-8pm) is free to all and includes wine and a chance to meet the artists. One show at the Mead Gallery, Fresh Masaala, explores representations of British Asian identities and asks what it really means to be British Asian.

The exhibition, featuring the work of Poulomi Desai, Zineb Sedira and Ali Zaidi, has been brought together with the help of local Coventry people, and uses photography and digital media to get its message over.

You can also get in on the action - there is a free interactive photo booth from Feb 9-11 and from Feb 5-26 people have the opportunity to make a soundscape for the exhibition. Voices, music and words woven together will provide viewpoints about the work on show.

STEALING BEAUTY will be reviewed in this column soon.

New shows

AN EXHIBITION by Jamie Edgar, from Stoke, Coventry, and Craig Hickman is on at the exhibition hall, Civic Centre 2, Coventry (opposite Browns) from Tuesday, Jan 25, to Saturday, Feb 5.
