Book Launch and Discussion
Nabil Anani: Palestine, Land and People

With artist Nabil Anani, Dr. Tina Sherwell
Saturday, September 15 | 17:00 – 18:30

Over the past five decades, Nabil Anani built an impressive catalogue of outstanding, innovative and unique art, pioneering the use of local media such as leather, henna, natural dyes, papier-mâché, wood, beads and copper. Anani’s development as an artist has run in parallel with major events in recent Palestinian history. His work reflects the lived Palestinian experience, exhibiting distinctive responses to issues of exile, dislocation, conflict, memory and loss. Anani’s artistic vision restores and celebrates a denied and often-forgotten reality, his work re-igniting memory.

Bringing together more than 150 of his works, along with contributions from acclaimed Palestinian poet Mourid Barghouti as well as from leading Middle Eastern art historians, Rana Anani, Lara Khaldi, Bashir Makhoul, Nada Shabout, Housni Alkhateeb Shehadeh and Tina Sherwell.

Design Workshop
Incorporating Palestinian Cultural History into Contemporary Design

Designer: Natalie Tahhan
Friday – Tuesday, 21 – 25 September | 10:00 – 14:00

The concept of the workshop examines the various ways of translating Palestinian historical culture into contemporary designs. Whether in product, in print and other design forms, the workshop will allow young designers/artists to explore ideas and communicate Palestinian embroidery in a modern way.
Utilizing ideas inspired by Labour of Love, the knowledge and the tools on how to conduct in-depth research, the language behind embroidery motifs, and guidance in formulating ideas to realise into products/art form; we will walk the young designers/artists through a process which will aid them in creating meaningful and thought-provoking designs.
This workshop is aimed at designers and artists.
