If you haven’t seen it yet, you will still want to make a special trip to see “Palestine: Unlimited” this week! This exhibition is derived from a signature initiative of Dar al-Kalima University College of Arts and Culture in Bethlehem: a call to the best young photographers of Palestine to share interpretations of their country and its people. Ten finalists from the Karimeh Abboud Award Competition – named for a pioneering 20th century Palestinian female photographer – help us break through icons and stereotypes, in order to experience Palestine as it really is. The Tower Gallery is open during office hours (9-4:30 M-F) and Sunday until noon. This Sunday, May 13th, is the last day for the exhibit.
Palestine is a contested land. People everywhere watch Palestine, expectantly. Many share stories, images, interpretations and explanations, hoping to build a clearer picture of Palestine, hoping to make a positive contribution to the future of the country and its people. Indeed, sometimes it seems that everyone has something to say about Palestine. But do Palestinians themselves get to say what Palestine is about? Come see through the lens of these photographers pictures of life in Palestine.
