Preoccupations: Palestinian Landscapes 

When: Jan. 11-Feb. 8 2020
Here, the word “preoccupations” is a double entendre — it can refer to both Palestinians’ longstanding preoccupation with landscape art, but also Israel’s occupation of Palestine, which has transformed the terrain with military checkpoints and the West Bank wall. Curated by Kathy Zarur, this show features photos, paintings, and mixed-media from Palestinian artists Ryah Aqel, Zeina Barakeh, C. Gazaleh, Najib Joe Hakim, Manar Harb, Yazan Khalili, Suhad Khatib, and Mary Tuma. The show’s run includes a panel discussion and brunch at 11 a.m. on Sunday, Jan. 12; a conversation between Zarur and University of Michigan Islamic Arts lecturer Sascha Crasnow about the challenges of curating exhibitions of Palestinian art in the U.S. at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 16; a “Building a Palestine Library” event from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25; a zine-making worksop from 2-5 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 1; and a closing reception from 7-9 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 8.
