Rula Halawani is participating in MEMORY METAMORPHOSIS, a collective exhibition at New York University’s Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies. Opening on 9 December at 5 pm, MEMORY METAMORPHOSIS explores the concept of diasporic memory through various art forms (e.g. painting, photography, performance). 

 

The exhibition’s featured works were selected by a diverse group of curators based on interviews conducted by Kevorkian MA students with US-based Palestinians who describe their memories of home. The interviewees include well-known cultural practitioners such as Palestinian novelist and architect Suad Amiry. Halawani is represented alongside Dina Matar and Jacqueline Reem Salloum, among other Palestinian artists, filmmakers, and musicians.
