In light of the tragic situation currently unfolding in Palestine, which is manifesting in the loss of countless innocent lives, and in solidarity with the Palestinian people, Darat al Funun - The Khalid Shoman Foundation is postponing its upcoming exhibition and public programs, with the exception of the educational program.
The amplification of artists' voices is needed now more than ever. Artists are witnesses to the injustices of our world today, and offer new visions for how we may live in the future. This is why Darat al Funun is here today.
We invite you to bring your friends and family to visit Darat al Funun to view works on Palestine by Samira Badran, Jumana Emil Abboud, Rula Halawani, Mona Hatoum, Khaled Hourani, Emily Jacir, Rachid Koraïchi, Abdul Hay Mosallam, Ahmad Nawash, Ismail Shammout, Laila Shawa, Wael Shawky, and Suha Shoman, currently on display.
Also on display is a video of a lecture on the history and origin of the Nakba by historian and researcher Walid Khalidi, and a film of the last interview with political activist and literary critic Edward Said.
