Leila El Rayes is currently exhibiting as part of a group exhibition titled ‘If you were buried for a thousand years even you would be priceless’ at M16 Artspace in Canberra.
This group show of new media, sculpture, drawing and painting brings together artists from the ACT and interstate and explores ways of life and living using objects of material culture. This means still life, fragmentary images, text, the stuff of future archaeology, the stuff of contemporary anthropology. The artists involved use various approaches from detached poetic and humorous collection and cataloguing to more explicitly personal and immediate expressions. (Until 25 February, 2018).
Leila will also be performing new performance works on 24 February as part of ‘Desire Lines‘ at PACT and the official Art Month Sydney program on the 8 March at the National Art School.
