Events in Amman, November 21 – 27

الأحد 21 تشرين الثاني 2010

This week’s agenda has a high dosage of local young artists with two collective exhibitions opening; an Urban Art exhibition at Foresight32 featuring works by 22 artists, and a fashion art exhibition at Cafe des Artistes with works by 19 artists.

Makan Art Space is screening Banksy’s film “Exit through the Gift Shop” on Monday night, and Documentary Film Days kick off on Tuesday in collaboration between the French Cultural Center and the Royal Film Commission.

Live Music is back at Canvas after a summer hiatus, this time with Yacoub Abu Ghosh and the Stage Heroes playing a mesh of post funk, post jazz and post modern sounds in a repertoire of original compositions and reinvented jazz and rock standards.

There’s a lot more: an interesting architectural talk at the Engineers Association, a book launch at Readers, cycling, theater, concerts… so read on, and have a great week.

7iber’s calendar is in collaboration with Waw al-Balad Magazine.
