The area
Address
Neighborhood: South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
How to get there
  • Earl's Court • 4 min walk

What’s to see “Praneet Soi, Anamorphosis: Notes from Palestine, Winter in the Kashmir Valley” (MOSAIC ROOMS, London)
Nov 2019
ONE-SENTENCE SUMMARY. A solo exhibition linking the hardship of both territories.

Exhibits occupy both the ground floor galleries and the basement.

G/F: Sketches and diaries based on interviews in Palestine.

Basement: Craft works surrounded by cold political statements, the Indian Constitution and Kashmir’s independence declarations.

LOCATION. Nearest station: Earl’s Court. As you exit the station, go across the street then all the way north, north, north. The Mosaic Road is right across Cromwell Road.

FEES. Free entry for all.

BEFORE YOU VISIT. The website is pretty ambiguous on its holiday opening hours. To avoid disappointment, enquire before your journey.

Contemporary culture from the arabic world
Sep 2019
A beautiful building with staff keen to educate about the culture and environment, and discuss contemporary issues of the current societies in the region. A peaceful exhibition space showcases arts and crafts with facilities to contemplate modern digital media. Check out the programme of events and talks.

A space bringing together Tehran-based artists.

Visit: “When Legacies became Debts”

... Which means in terms of style it is variety all over the place. But thematically, we as observers get to share this eternal struggle, between a tradition, and everything else.

So find yourself in a healthy yet long list of media. (Serious) documentaries. A spiral staircase filled with books. Photography. The repeated pixilation of an art exhibition transforming information into chaos (video).

You can find all the art works on the ground floor or in the basement. Except for one, and somewhat forgotten by the curators (having not mentioned it) – a book work and an audio display between G and 1/F, working on the interesting premise of how public art has ‘been disappeared’ around the spring of 2010, suggesting a sadly collective process much akin to ‘bees’ in a ‘beehive’.

A hidden gem worth visiting
Jul 2018 • Friends
I'm glad to see such galleries as the Mosaic Rooms focusing on arts from a crowd less being heard. When we were there, they were showing an exhibition called "What do you mean, here we are?", which was work from artist at the Townhouse gallery, Cairo, Egypt. There was a lovely model of the Townhouse gallery and the surrounding streets and a variation from installation to video arts. The art mostly shows their culture and the suppression artists are having within the area. Very unique artworks indeed!
It's free to enter, so I do recommend to have a look. It doesn't feel like a gallery space, more like a small museum with its own shop and cafe.

Nice little gallery with plenty of lectures and events going on. Worth a stop if you happen to be strolling between the museums and Earl's Court.

Best Supper Club in London
Jun 2015 • Solo
I love the exhibitions at The Mosaic Rooms, they are intimate and quite unique, but what distinguishes The Mosaic Rooms from other venues is the excellence of hteir talks and their absolutely delicious Supper Club events. Not only do you eat he most delicious food, but you learn so much about the differences between the various Middle East Countries and also the similarities between all "Family Recipes".
The Mosaic Rooms are truly an amazing addition to the Kensington cultural scene: a must visit place ALL year round!
