About Sutapa Biswas

Born in India and educated in the UK since the age of four, Sutapa Biswas is a conceptual artist working across a range of media including painting, drawing, film and time based media. With her background in fine art and art history, and frequently inspired by art historical and literary texts, Biswas’ works explore ‘spatial stories’ and the relationships between people and the places they live in. Underpinned by an interest in colonial histories and how this relates to gender, race and class, her art is nuanced by the ways in which oral narratives reveal the human condition and their relationship to our collective histories and to questions of time.  

Biswas graduated with a BA in Fine Art with Art History from Leeds University, completed her postgraduate at the Slade School of Art and was a research student at the Royal College of Art.

About Issam Kourbaj

Issam Kourbaj (born 1963, Syria) is an artist based in Cambridge. His recent installations and performances reflect on the ongoing crisis in his homeland, Syria, and have been exhibited internationally. Recent projects have taken place at the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Penn Museum, Philadelphia, and the Brooklyn Museum, New York. His work was also included in Actions. The image of the world can be different at Kettle’s Yard in 2018.

About Oscar Murillo

Oscar Murillo was born in 1986 in Colombia and moved to London with his family when he was ten years old. His practice incorporates a variety of techniques and media including painting, performance, drawing, collaborative works, sculpture and sound, often using recycled materials and fragments collected from his studio. Many of his works undergo multiple processes in the studio before being exhibited. Murillo’s work reflects his own experience of displacement, and the social fallout of globalisation.


This event will take place in the extension of the House which is accessible, with some limitations. The upper part of the ground floor extension area of the House is accessible for wheelchair users, and if you call in advance or ask at the information desk we can reserve an accessible seat for you.
