Event description
In Person Private Viewing of We Refuse to be Scapegoats, an exhibition by artist of mixed Eastern European Jewish heritage Pam Skelton

About this event

P21 Gallery is delighted to present We Refuse to be Scapegoats – the first UK solo exhibition in the last ten years by the established British artist of mixed Eastern European Jewish heritage Pam Skelton. The exhibition is curated by Iliyana Nedkova specifically for the gallery and will be open to the public between 24 June and 10 July 2021 in line with all public health regulations.

We Refuse to be Scapegoats represents the artist’s findings from a long-term research deriving from her own family history, and in particular, the histories, memories and impact of the Jewish Shoah (Holocaust) and the Palestinian Nakba (meaning ‘catastrophe’ or ‘disaster’) on ensuing generations in diverse geopolitical contexts. This artistic interrogation draws from two sources. Firstly, the artist’s own video and audio archive from her research trips to Poland in 1993 and 1996, Israel Palestine in 1995, and Scotland in 2016. Secondly, the online archives selected from Israeli and Palestinian non-governmental organisations, human rights charities and media resources. 

Event is supported by Art Council England and Hub Collective.

Organiser of PRIVATE VIEW | We Refuse to be Scapegoats

The P21 Gallery is an independent London-based charitable trust established to promote contemporary Middle Eastern and Arab art and culture. The two-story venue in central London is a place where contemporary artistic statements are experienced and appreciated by a artistic community. The facilities at P21 are planned to maximise the potential of contemporary art as a discourse, through multimedia exhibition spaces on two levels with supporting facilities for public functions in addition to workshops for training and education.
