“Despite” brings together the work of a group of contemporary artists from Palestine – both the West Bank and Gaza, and includes work by artists such as Mohammed Joha, Hani Zurob, Majed Shala, Mohammed Abusal, Nidal Abu Oun and Raed Issa.
The exhibition is curated by Arts Canteen which aims to encourage artistic conversations between the Middle East/Arab world and the UK, bringing the work of visual artists and musicians of the region and its diasporas to the UK.
“Despite” explores the juxtaposition of our “real” structured environments with the artistic imagination. It draws on bleak images of humiliation and restricted movement alongside sheer joy in the diversity of forms of cacti.
This collection will challenge pre-conceptions and fire curiosity.
