“The South London Gallery presents a restaging of the group exhibition, Welcome to Iraq, originally shown as part of the National Pavilion of Iraq in the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013. Works in a variety of media by eleven contemporary artists, most of whom live and work in Iraq, were selected to highlight the breadth of artistic practice in Iraq and a creativity borne out of necessity in extraordinary historical circumstances”.

The attraction to see this exhibition, with some much other stuff to do, was the miscellaneous cartoons of Abdul Raheem Yassir, ink on A4 paper.
