Event Details

Zawyeh Gallery presents ‘Visualizing Palestine: An Intimate Portrait of a Land’, an exhibition of selected works by two of Palestine’s most significant and senior artists, Nabil Anani and Sliman Mansour. Both primarily painters, have played a crucial role in defining modern art in Palestine. Their works are a repository of images of the Palestinian experience, but particularly of the landscape as re- imagined and revisualised through both artists’ intimate knowledge of its stories, history and the contemporary devastations visited upon it. Their timeless images evoke the specific geography of this place while telling us about the occupation that has redesigned its borders and contours. In vibrant colours and with bold, emphatic drawing, both artists render a vivid experience in paint of the specific Palestinian geography with its iconic and ancient olive trees, the traditional stone houses of the villages built into the terraced hillsides, and some of the more modern manifestations of ‘home’: the refugee camps now similarly embedded in the Palestinian topography.
