Shen Wei
Shen Wei unveils his most recent series

the materiality of a heavy impasto and thick textured paint on canvas.

Jade, or Not Jade? That Is the Question

worked stones to encourage just that.

Where are you from? Places of a present past
This exhibition explores the identity position of the Palestinian-Israeli through the work of Kamal Aljafari, Aissa Deebi, and Dor Guez. In 1948, when the State of Israel was established, some Palestinians were given the option of Israeli citizenship. Today they make up 20% of the Israeli population but are still a minority that lives in a present state of discrimination that recalls the physical and political displacement of the past. These artists work at the bizarre intersection of nationalisms produced by the occupation of Palestine.
