Tishreen marks the season of harvest when women in brightly embroidered dresses gather to pick olives, a time when the land rewards its keepers with its fruits. This exhibition is a celebration of our ancestral connection to the land, of our traditional embroidered “Toub” (dress), adorned with stitches reflecting the land, its vegetation, birds and animals. It is a reconstruction of tradition, a contemporary take on our visual identity using hand-shaped & hammered metals (aluminum, brass and tin) as well as mixed work on paper. A salute to the land and its people.
Opening 5 October - 6 pm
