The Place I Call Home is a contemporary exhibition of photography commissioned by the British Council and curated by David Drake, Director of Ffotogallery Wales, that presents the work of artists from both the United Kingdom and The Gulf, as they explore the idea of ‘home’ at a time of rapid change.
Originally to be displayed in the Maraya Art Centre in Sharjah, UAE, from 8 March – 31 May 2020, the exhibition has now gone online in response to Covid-19. Through this digitisation, audiences can enjoy a 360-degree visual walk-through tour, all from the comfort of their own home.
Viewers also have the chance to submit their own photographs on what the place they call home looks like through a photo-based competition. (see details below).
