We Are All Palestinian
In September as most of you know, Palestinians will appeal to the United Nations to recognize the autonomous State of Palestine – more than 63 years after the U.N. Partition Vote and the end of the 1948 war that punctuated the establishment of Israel.
September will also mark the 10th anniversary of the second Intifada. Moreover, it is the 10th anniversary of 9/11 along with the 10th anniversary of the Levantine Cultural Center.
“We Are All Palestinians” will be a group exhibit of contemporary work (painting, sculpture, video, multimedia) by Arab, Iranian, Armenian, Turkish, Jewish and artists of other ethnic identities who are interested in sharing in the experience and the discourse on what it means to be Palestinian in the 21st century. Every artist regardless of nationality or religion is invited to submit work for consideration. Work that may be described as satirical, political, post-modernist, hyperrealist and other genres will be considered.
“We Are All Palestinians” will run Sept/Oct 2011 in the Inside/Outside Gallery at the Levantine Cultural Center. Artists are responsible for framing and shipping expenses although pick-up and delivery arrangements can be made for local artists.
Artists interested in participating should submit jpgs of their work and a short statement of interest to Jordan Elgrably, firstname.lastname@example.org.
About the Inside/Outside Gallery
Addressing a void in the American art world, Inside/Outside Gallery is the first gallery in the United States to specialize in presenting contemporary Arab/Middle Eastern artists. Inside/Outside seeks to challenge Orientalist stereotypes by providing the general public with both a physical and online location to view/appreciate art that is representative of the diversity and evolving cultural identity of the Arab/Muslim world and its growing diaspora.
