Join us for a morning of online illustrated talks, readings and discussion exploring themes arising from the exhibition ‘Hiwa-K Do you remember what you are burning?’, on display until 13 February at Hugh Lane Gallery.
About the Hiwa K exhibition:
‘In 1996, at age 21, the Iraqi-Kurdish artist Hiwa K fled Kurdistan on foot, embarking on a journey to Europe that lasted five months and twenty days. He lived in Germany for almost two decades and in 2020 he moved back to his birthplace of Sulaymaniyah, in Kurdistan. Do you remember what you are burning? is Hiwa K’s first solo exhibition in Ireland, bringing together works created over the past ten years.’ More here.
