Rana Begum is one of the most exciting artists working in Britain today. She has completed commissions in Dubai, Cambridge, and King’s Cross in London.
Rana Begum’s practice blurs the boundaries between sculpture, painting and architecture. It engages some of the movements of the past such as Minimalism and Constructivism with the same level of optimism and, at the same time, is fresh and relevant for today. She has been awarded the prestigious Abraaj prize, Art Dubai 2017.
Her use of space, colour and form will transform the Mezzanine Gallery with an immersive installation and wall-mounted reliefs, taking advantage of the light and space of Norman Foster’s architecture.
This will be her first museum show anywhere in the world.
