Travel has become an integral part of Brian Kennedy’s work and he documents his journeys photographically as well as making large-scale site-specific installations, video, performances and drawings. He has exhibited extensively internationally and in 2002 he was the Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s Fellow at the British School at Rome.
In November 2010, Sloan and Kennedy travelled to Syria and the Lebanon interviewing artists and curators and documenting their views on a diverse range of topics such as feminism, censorship and Facebook.
Current events in the Middle East have given this work a new urgency and the interviews give an insight into the creative aspirations of artists in the Arab world at an important historical moment.
