Art Travelling in London means the world comes to you much of the time! March 2024 sees the AWAN — Arab Women Artists Now! — festival in London. A wide range of activities and approaches abound in the festival, from literary events to films, music and visual art.

I went to see “Tale Tonic” an exhibition at the Africa Centre showcasing works by Egyptian artists Marianne Fahmy and Nada El Kalaawy. Both artists use cultural motifs, found pictures, objects, and historical references to create literal and metaphorical visualisations.
