The Mosaic Rooms is an arts space showcasing contemporary culture from and connected to the Middle East. We bring the most exciting, progressive, and innovative voices in art, literature, and film from the region to audiences in the United Kingdom.
Situated in a beautifully refurbished Victorian townhouse in Kensington, we offer a rich and varied program, including art and design exhibitions, film screenings, literary launches, readings, and lectures.
The Mosaic Rooms has profiled leading artists, writers, and filmmakers from the Arab world and beyond, including Raja Shehadeh, Hanaa’ Mal-Allah, Hisham Matar, Antony Gormley, Mahmoud Darwish, and Mona Saudi, as well as younger emerging contemporaries. Entrance to exhibitions and many of our events is free.
Alongside this varied program of events, we also offer residencies to visiting artists and cultural practitioners, and run educational outreach projects in the local area. A resource center for those interested in Middle Eastern culture is also accessible through our specialist bookshop and archive.
The Mosaic Rooms is an A.M. Qattan Foundation project. The foundation is a UK charity dedicated to the support of culture and education in Palestine and the Arab world. The Mosaic Rooms is part of the foundation’s Culture and Arts Programme.
