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

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

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.

100 Years 

by Jack Persekian

Friday 15 December 2017

Gallery Anadiel, Freres Road,

New Gate, Old City

4 – 9 pm

An exhibition bringing together photographs from the 19th century  superimposed with photographs taken today in the same location. The work is an attempt to encourage people, especially Jerusalemites, to reassess their relation to the city; reexamine it carefully, indulge in its details and love it – not for what it was and what it symbolizes, but for what it can be.


Exhibition continues until 20 January 2018
