Rula Halawani
Centre Pompidou acquisition
Ayyam Gallery is proud to announce that the Centre Pompidou acquired works from Rula Halawani's Intimacy series. 
"This body of work examines the experience of the Qalandia checkpoint, which has come to symbolize the ramifications of the current Israeli occupation. There are very few faces among the collection of images; rather “Intimacy I” captures intimate encounters between Palestinians seeking to cross the border and the Israeli soldiers preventing them from doing so, through close-up detail."
