My Father's House: The Architecture of Cultural Heritage at the Brunei Gallery
My Father’s House has been touring in the Middle East since February 2009.
LONDON.- Featuring work by five emerging Middle Eastern artists and three UK photographers – including Winner of the World Press Photo of the Year 2007 Tim Hetherington – the exhibition uses large-scale photography, audio-visual media and film to examine how the built environment reflects the people, the community, society and the nations of the Gulf States and Arabian Peninsula.

Each of the artists has focused on an individual sphere of investigation and specific countries in the Gulf States and Arabian Peninsula.

Commissioned by the British Council, My Father’s House approaches the subject of cultural identity from the inside out. The exhibition hopes to remind its audiences to look at the spaces they inhabit, and engage in the debate about development of their built environment, to ensure that it reflects a true sense of their personal and communal identity.

My Father’s House has been touring in the Middle East since February 2009 and has been displayed in Oman; Bahrain; Jeddah and Riyadh in Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates and Qatar. This will be the first time the exhibition has been shown in Europe and the United Kingdom.

This is the 100th exhibition presented by the Brunei Gallery, SOAS.
