Exhibition of Contemporary Palestinian Art in NYC
MADE IN PALESTINE, which is (apparently) the first exhibition of contemporary Palestinian art in the US, opens in New York City from March 14-April 22, 2006. It features such well-known Palestinian artists as Taysir Barakat, Suleiman Mansour, Vera Tamari and Emily Jacir. Check out the website here, it has short bios on the artists, examples of the artwork, and much more.
The exhibit is at The Bridge, 521 W. 26th St., 3rd Floor. The opening features artists Samia Halaby and Zuhdi al-Adawi plus music, food and wine.
I hope the curators have invited New York Senator Hilary Clinton to the opening.
