1948, Palestine. Painting was illegal but so was the occupation. They banned paint, the colors of the flag, and anything that could be used to fight back the Israeli military occupation. This exhibit recreates the resourcefulness the Palestinians had, more specifically the Palestinian painters and their continued fight to make art. The works in this exhibit showcase the solo art of Palestinian- American artist Marah Siyam. She uses very unconventional supplies like cement, wood stain, spray paint mixed with acrylic, mirror, etc. To replicate and pay homage to the Palestinian artists that never stopped making art as a form of resistance even when their supplies were ripped away.
