LAST CHANCE Samah Shihadi: Hungry for Home
8 January @ 7.00 pm - 9.30 pmFree
This solo exhibition of new works by the Palestinian artist Samah Shihadi is a collection of 18 compelling hyperrealist pencil and charcoal drawings that use traditional Palestinian food as a platform from which to explore deep-rooted cultural codes and memories. Shihadi’s powerfully realistic drawings, more closely aligned with photographs, use Palestine’s dishes and communal eating practices to communicate the collective experience of lost identity, displacement, and ultimately the artist’s aspiration to return home.
