Opening Hours: 
Nunnery Gallery, 181 Bow Road, London E3 2SJ

Join us for the private view of ME 2 U: A collective manifesto – the culmination of Baesianz’s curation of this year’s annual Bow Open show, as they investigate the tools, rituals, and routines that provide us with joy, growth, and grounding. 

In ME 2 U: A collective manifesto, Baesianz have called upon Bow Arts artists to share their methods of survival, in an ode to the ceremony of togetherness and the resourcefulness found not just within oneself, but in community too. Presenting 21 artists’ works, each provides a visual representation of a love letter to the past, present, and future. 

The exhibition explores regenerative themes surrounding rebirth and renewal, a reclamation of feminist and queer narratives, and the honouring of nature, both internal and external. 

The gallery will be open from 6-9pm. Drinks and snacks from the Nunnery Café will be served throughout.

About Baesianz 

Baesianz is a London-based collective and platform that celebrates Asian artists from all over the globe, founded by Sami Kimberley, Sarah Khan and Roxanne Farahmand, with Asian origins spanning China, Pakistan and Iran.  By producing, curating and exhibiting the art and voices of Asians living both within and outside of Asia, we aim to create an evolving library that can be experienced by all. We asked ourselves: in which ways have our lives been impacted by ideas around multiculturalism and integration? How can the creative outputs of Asians be celebrated in a contemporary landscape without tokenism or marginalisation? Where do we go to creatively replenish our roots? Baesianz was our answer.
