International exhibitions: Jamaican Spiritual & I AM

St Martin-in-the-Fields and St Stephen Walbrook are both hosting exhibitions by international artists beginning in the coming week.

I AM at St Martin-in-the-Fields (Sunday 2 July – Sunday 20 August) is a peacebuilding art exhibition organised by CARAVAN that showcases the insights and experiences of Middle Eastern women as they confront issues of culture, religion and social reality in a rapidly changing world both in the Middle East and West. Designed to address stereotypes and challenge misconceptions of the ‘other’, the I AM exhibition will be a visual celebration of the crucial role that Middle Eastern women play in the enduring global quest for a more harmonious and peaceful future.

St Stephen Walbrook is hosting an exhibition of Jamaican spiritual art arranged by Art Jamaica ( from 3 July to 16 July 2017. The exhibition has been curated by Art Jamaica founder Theresa Roberts who has included mainly new work from young Jamaican artists but will also be featuring selected work from her own extensive collection. The Private View will be held on the evening of 3 July but thereafter the exhibition is open to the public. The show is made up of painting,sculpture and photography highlighting the strong spiritual nature of Jamaica and it's people. Whilst predominantly Christian, Jamaica is home to a wide variety of religions which coexist peacefully. The variety of spiritual beliefs held on the island reflect the diverse nature of the people who live there and the motto of the country "Out of many we are one". Whilst spirituality is the overriding theme the exhibition inevitably also offers a compelling insight into the diverse nature and vibrancy of modern Jamaica.
