Labour of Love: New Approaches to Palestinian

https://www.qalandiyainternational.org/
Exhibition Opening: ‘٬Lydda – A Garden Disremembered’
Venue: Birzeit University Museum
Birzeit | 1 pm – 2.30pm​
Exhibition examines the controversies and analogies dealing with the imported British colonial planning paradigm and what that entails from post-industrial spatial forms and ethos, the transformation of Lydda to an ethnically cleansed and segregated city that had been despotically altered and the systematic racial planning policies that aimed at disempowering and suppressing Palestinian communities in favour of Jewish immigrants. Do the now displaced Lyddans carry platonic memories of their city? Perhaps not the paradise garden forseen by Holliday and Polcheck , but a city of once historical and social coherence where harmony has now been replaced by chaos and violence.
Organised: A. M. Qattan Foundation in cooperation with Birzeit University Museum​
Exhibition continues until 15 January 2019

معرض غزْل العروق: عين جديدة على التطريز الفلسطيني
المكان:‬المتحف الفلسطيني، بيرزيت
يضيء معرض “غزْل العروق: عين جديدة على التطريز الفلسطيني” على أحد عناصر تاريخ فلسطين المادي، مُستكشفًا الطرق التي عمل فيها التطريز -رغم عدم وجود صلة تاريخية بينه وبين القوّة السياسية- في فلسطين كأداة فاعلة بيد أولئك اللواتي أنتجنه وارتدينه. غالبًا ما يُمجّد الاحتفاء بالتراث الفلسطيني باعتباره فعل تضامن، ولكن ما هي أشكال التضامن التي تستهدفها وتنتجها الممارسات المتعلقة بالتراث؟ كيف تتقاطع هذه الأشكال والممارسات مع إشكاليات مواضيع النوع الاجتماعي (الجندر) والعمل والطبقة التي يتناولها المعرض؟

البرنامج
٢.٣٠ – ٣ مساءً : التجمع في المتحف الفلسطيني
٣ – ٣.٤٥ مساءً : جولة في معرض “غزْل العروق”، وكيف نقرأ التضامن في التطريز الفلسطيني؟ مع قيّمة المعرض ريتشل ديدمان

Tour and Book Launch
Labour of Love: New Approaches to Palestinian
Venue: The Palestinian Museum
Embroidery sheds light on an aspect of Palestine’s material history, exploring the ways in which embroidery—although not traditionally associated with political power—has become a locus of agency for those who make it and wear it. Celebration of Palestinian heritage is often extolled as an act of solidarity, but what forms of solidarity do heritage practices address and produce? How do these intersect the problematics of gender, labour and class that the exhibition examines?

Programme

2.30 – 3 pm: Gathering at the Palestinian Museum
3 – 3.45 pm: Tour of the exhibition Labour of Love how do we explain solidarity in Palestinian embroidery? with curator Rachel Dedman.
3.50 – 4.40pm:Discussion with Rachel Dedman, Dr. Tina Sherwell and Chiara Di Sassari. Moderated by Dr. Adila Laïdi-Hanieh.
4:55 – 5.10: The Palestinian Museum will honor Labour of Love exhibition donors, collectors, and catalogue contributors.
5.15 – 6.30: Reception at the Palestinian Museum, organised by the Palestinian Museum and A. M. Qattan Foundation.

We are approaching the end of the current exhibition cluster in which participated artists Avner Katz, Daniel Tchetchik, Amira Ziyan, Jannat Amara, Yael Toren, and Avraham Eilat.

Many groups and guests from all around the country visited the exhibitions and were profoundly impressed with them, and with the wonderful combination between them.

There is no better way to end this exhibition cluster than having a closing event and a gallery talk with the artists and curators.

You are welcome to the closing event on Saturday, April 28th, 12 am, at the Umm el-Fahem Art Gallery.

Bethlehem Beyond the Wall: Photographs Art and Artifacts 1890-2017

https://www.facebook.com/events/484563171944401/

Details
Everyone recognizes Bethlehem as the birthplace of Jesus, few know about the city’s rich culture. You can catch a glimpse of that richness at our new exhibition, at Manhattan College, Feb 19th – 27th, 2018. Bethlehem Beyond the Wall moves beyond myth and politics to show the city through the eyes of people who’ve lived there for centuries. The exhibition includes roughly 100 photographic images organized into discrete sections, 7 paintings (acrylic on canvas), 4 video interviews, and a series of maps to help viewers locate Bethlehem inside shifting political boundaries.

February 19-27, 2018 Open Monday – Saturday from 10 am -7 pm at Kelly 5A

Related Events and Programs:
Feb. 19 Opening Reception 5:30-7, Kelly 5A

Art Workshop

Interaction with Oscar Murillo’s artwork “the Institute of Reconciliation”

In partnership with Silwan Club and the African Community Society 

 

Sunday, December 17th| 10:00-16:30 

Friday, December 22nd| 10:00-16:30

Location: Silwan Club in Ras el Amoud, Jerusalem 

 

Colombian artist Oscar Murillo, a contributor to the public program of the “Jerusalem Lives” exhibition, worked with young people from Jerusalem to execute his artwork, “The Institute of Reconciliation”, thereby launching the Jerusalem branch of a project he has implemented in several places around the world. The artwork, which consists of a number of black paintings, goes beyond contemplation. The heavy, woven and torn black canvases, painted on in black oil colour, make up sprawling installations that hang on strings or screens or metal. They reflect on the history of labour, trade, society, consumerism, and art. They provide space to view the city from an alternative collaborative perspective.

We will complete what the artist started by inviting the children to interact with the work in novel artistic ways. These black paintings will be a space for them to create their own artworks or interpret their ideas of re-presenting the artwork however they wish.
