My Neighbor is Going

Al Mahatta Gallery  |  Visual Arts  |  2010  |  Palestine
The Mahatta Gallery in Palestine is launching an ambitious experiment in alternative cartography to explore notions of travel and mobility under occupation. Ten young Palestinian artists will set out for different Palestinian cities, recording their experiences navigating checkpoints, road closures and other artificial, social and natural barriers, and translating them into works of art. The resulting show will tour Palestine, making a stronger, collective statement on the right to movement.
