The Mosaic Rooms are a non-profit art gallery and bookshop dedicated to supporting and promoting contemporary culture from the Arab world and beyond. We work
in partnership with local, national and international organisations to disseminate our arts programme to a wide and diverse audience. They are a project of the A.M. Qattan
The Mosaic Rooms presents ‘Fantasies on a Found Phone, Dedicated to the Man Who Lost It’, the first UK solo exhibition by Mahmoud Khaled. Through a series of unfolding
installations and interventions Khaled builds an immersive environment. He ambitiously transforms The Mosaic Rooms period, domestic architecture into the imagined dwellings of the owner of a lost phone. The work continues Khaled’s interest in historic
house museums and the nostalgia and memorialising of individual perspectives found in them. In this new commission the artist repositions this museological form in
a contemporary queer lens to explore male identity and intimacy.
