Resilience and Light Poster

In partnership with Studio 3 Gallery at the University of Kent, Arts Canteen has curated a distinguished group of Palestinian artists for this exhibition including such leading figures in contemporary Arab art as: Laila Shawa, who exhibited at ICA’s AKA Peace exhibition; Abraaj Capital Art Prize winner Taysir Batniji; Hani Zurob, who was tipped by The Huffington Post as one of ten ‘international artists to watch in 2013’;

Hazem Harb who recently participated at the inaugural ART13 in London with his solo exhibition, Impossible Travel, Me and the Other Half & Inside-Outside; and Mohammed Joha who launched his ambitious project The Jasmine and Bread Revolution in 2012 at The Courtyard Gallery, Dubai.

While diverse in approach and style, the artists included in this exhibition are working within a shared set of circumstances that define the reception of contemporary Palestinian art within and beyond the Arab world. Resilience and Light will explore a number of themes arising from their specific situations, including how art is interpreted within and out of its historical, social and political context.
