«Intimate Portrayals» photography exhibition by Taysir Batniji and Noel Jabbour
Barbican Centre  Silk Street, London EC2Y8DS, United Kingdom
Intimate Portrayals showcases works by Palestinian artists Taysir Batniji and Noel Jabbour. Both explore Palestinian life through intimate encounters with the everyday, allowing viewers a rewarding respite from the stereotypical flow of images about Palestine. The two series showcased in 'Intimate Portrayals' share an emotional authenticity and convey real concerns over current conditions while transcending the constraints of classic photo reportage. The exhibition is presented in the framework of the Palestine Fiilm Festival at the Barbican, organized by the Palestine Film Foundation in cooperation with ArtSchool Palestine. Curated by Samar Martha

Mary Magdalene #7 (Forget-me-not)
»The Library of Babel—In and Out of Place«, 176 Zabludowicz Collection

February 25 – June 13, 2010
«The Library of Babel / In and Out of Place»
Zabludowicz Collection
176 Prince of Wales Road, London NW5 3PT


Noel is represented with the art work: Mary Magdalene #7 (Forget-me-not) 2003, C-Print, 134 X 106.5 cm. From the series: Mary Magdalene
All seven images of the series are in the possession of the Zabludowicz Collection.


As part of 176 Zabludowicz Collection’s curatorial residency, Anna-Catharina Gebbers was given complete freedom to create an exhibition from the over 2000 works in the Zabludowicz Collection. The result is a dramatic contrast to former presentations of works from the Collection. With over 200 works exhibited, »The Library of Babel—In and Out of Place« will be the largest ever showcase of works from the Zabludowicz Collection. Anna-Catharina Gebbers invites us into a salon-style exhibition, a format which emphasises the deliberately overwhelming amount of contemporary works of art including painting, photography, sculpture and video. Inspired by Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges’ short story »The Library of Babel« [1941] where inhabitants of an infinite library search for the absolute interpretation of the information around them, »The Library of Babel—In and Out of Place« encourages the visitor to embark on a similar quest for meaning. While Anna-Catharina Gebbers generously empowers the visitors to draw their own conclusions from the Collection, seemingly incongruous works belie carefully disguised threads of meaning waiting to be uncovered and interpreted. In and Out of Place, is the umbrella title for exhibitions and events associated with Anna-Catharina Gebbers’s guest curatorship with 176 Zabludowicz Collection. The title is borrowed from an essay about Louise Lawler written by Andrea Fraser.

The exhibition features the work of 167 artists:
Rita Ackermann / Mark Alexander / Guy Allott / Helene Appel / Nobuyoshi Araki / Hope Atherton / Jimmy Baker / Uta Barth / Christiane Baumgartner / Luca Bertolo / Richard Billingham / Steve Bishop / John Bock / Martin Boyce / Robert Buck / David Burrows / Gillian Carnegie / Helen Chadwick / Spartacus Chetwynd / Colin Chillag and David Quan / Ross Chisholm / Larry Clark / Oliver Clegg / Dan Colen and Nate Lowman / Mat Collishaw / Gregory Crewdson / Russell Crotty / Aaron Curry / Sean Dack / José Damasceno / Gerald Davis / Kate Davis / Amie Dicke / Kim Dingle / Tomory Dodge / Giles Eldridge / Tracey Emin / Saul Fletcher / Richard Forster / Helen Frik / Tom Früchtl / Marcius Galan / Anna Galtarossa and Daniel Gonzalez / Ryan Gander / Anna Gaskell / Adrian Ghenie / Sebastian Gögel / Nan Goldin / Melissa Gordon / Andrew Grassie / Anthony Green / Brian Griffiths / Andreas Gursky / Wade Guyton / Falk Haberkorn / Neil Hamon / Anne Hardy / Alexander Heim / Uwe Henneken / Candida Höfer / Craigie Horsfield / Barnaby Hosking / Matthew Houlding / Thomas Houseago / Lora Hristova / Graham Hudson / Thomas Hylander / Takaaki Izumi / Noel Jabbour / Sveinn Fannar Jóhannsson / Sven Johne / Juneau Projects / Steffen Junghans / Tillman Kaiser / Mary Kelly / Rachel Kneebone / Terence Koh / Paul Kooiker / Skafte Kuhn / Friedrich Kunath / Alicja Kwade / Dr Lakra / Jim Lambie / Luisa Lambri / Michael Landy / Louise Lawler / Edgar Leciejewski / Glenn Ligon / Nathan Mabry / Fabian Marti / Eline McGeorge / Melissa McGill / Josephine Meckseper / Deborah Mesa-Pelly / Tracey Moffatt / Gareth Moore / Vik Muniz / Matthew Musgrave / Tomoko Nagai / Yoshitomo Nara / Mike Nelson / Ben Nicholson / David Noonan / Rupert Norfolk / Arnold Odermatt / Albert Oehlen / David O’Kane / Gosha Ostretsov / Silke Otto-Knapp / Djordje Ozbolt / Adrian Paci / Nam June Paik / Bradley Peters / Paul Pfeiffer / Jack Pierson / Lari Pittman / Richard Prince / R.H.
