ArteEast: Opportunities for Artists June 2014-Middle East

Deadline Ongoing

The Palestinian Museum team has begun working on the Museum’s opening exhibition, “Never-part”.  The exhibition explores Palestinian identity through the stories of ordinary people and personal objects they have kept with them throughout their lives. The museum hopes to discover how meaning is given to everyday material objects, and ultimately craft an alternative yet familiar narrative of 20th and 21st century Palestinian history through the remarkable stories it has collected.
