Collateral event: 
From Palestine With Art
The European Cultural Centre is delighted to host From Palestine With Art, an exhibition organised by the Palestine Museum US, which will take place in the iconic venue of Palazzo Mora. The exhibition is a Collateral Event of the 59th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia, and will run from the 23rd of April until the 27th of November, 2022. “We are proud to be selected to participate in La Biennale Arte 2022. This gives us a great opportunity to fulfill our mission of celebrating and showcasing Palestinian artistic excellence and telling the Palestinian story to a global audience through the arts.”, says Founder and Executive Director Faisal Saleh.
Curated by Nancy Nesvet, Head Curator at the Palestine Museum, the exhibition will feature 19 Palestinian artists from across the diaspora, from New York, Boston and New Jersey to Kuwait, Jordan, Luxembourg, and Palestine itself. It will showcase paintings, including nine portraits of Palestinians prominent in arts and literature; installations, sculptures, photography and a floor-length historic map of Palestine; as well as a live olive tree filled with keys from Palestinian refugees’ homes signifying the right of return, and an audio program presenting recorded Palestinian oral histories and a continuous stream of Palestinian music.
