Wome/Jerusalem/Threads

Women/Jerusalem/Threads: Curated by Nissa Abdurazzak, this is the first London showcase of the international travelling exhibition, 'Palestine: Story and Colour', with a focus on the collective representation of women costumes in paintings. In commemoration of 70 years since the Nakba, the day following Israeli Declaration of Independence in 1948, the show explores the issues of displacement and identity loss through an observation of the eroding costumes tradition in Palestine as represented in paintings by Palestinian diaspora artists. Featuring the works of Jordanian and Palestinian artists, the works reveal how art becomes a tool to assure the continuance of Palestinian history in Jerusalem. Taking place 4-11 August, 2018 at the P21 Gallery, 21-27 Chalton Street, London NW1 1JD.
