The New Babylonians - an Exhibition by Gil Mualem-Doron

5th - 27th Sept, Rich Mix, London

In The New Babylonians exhibition artist Gil Mualem-Doron presents several of his complex and challenging participatory projects on the theme of belonging, memory, place and identity.

At the heart of the exhibition is The New Union Flag project, a proposal for a new flag that celebrates the UK’s cultural diversity. The New Union Flag is based on the Union Jack but the blue, white and red colours have been replaced with numerous ethnic textile designs, which represent the multicultural makeup of Britain. In contrast to any other national flag, the New Union Flag is constantly transforming, reflecting the ever-changing composition of the nation itself.

The exhibition will include two other participatory projects: Mesubim- a large room installation dealing with issues of place, memory and belonging that was created with refugees from 20 countries who are members of the Migrant English Project; and the Protesting For Diversity project that was carried out in several cities across England as a response to the growth of nationalism, xenophobia and hate crimes.

The New Babylonians exhibition runs from 5th to 27th September at Rich Mix in London.
