OCCUPIED: A SELECTION OF PALESTINIAN ARTWORKS
Exhibition dates: CAP Collection summer exhibition on view until the 16th of September
Palestinians have been living under occupation for over 50 years. Though many accounts have been heard about daily struggles and injustices, it’s impossible to know how it feels unless experienced first-hand. Being occupied is not just a force that takes over the land, it restricts people physically and can even inhabit the mind.
Art is one of the great forms of expression and has helped these artists communicate their thoughts, feelings and reality. Through the pieces in this exhibition we can experience frustration and disillusion but also perseverance and hope.
The artists included in this exhibition are:
Reza Aramesh – Laila Al Shawa – Hani Zuroub – Sliman Mansour – Wafa Hourani – Tanya Habjouqa – Steve Sabella – Abdulrahman Katanani – Mary Tuma – Ahmed Abu Al Adas
*This exhibition displays a selection of works from CAP’s collection related to Palestine or created by Palestinian artists
