New exhibition showcases work by Palestinian artists Hazem Harb and Mohammed Joha
Mohammed Joha, In X Out, Series #1 100X70 cm Acrylic on Paper, 2013.
DURHAM.- Traces and Revelations, an exhibition of paintings by internationally renowned, pioneering artists, Hazem Harb and Mohammed Joha, opened on Friday 4th April at the Oriental Museum, Durham University.

The work of Harb and Joha explores the themes of loss of identity, home, diaspora and overcoming the physical and psychological boundaries created by conflict, specifically in their own personal histories of growing up in Palestine.This exhibition seeks to evoke intense emotions and present an arresting, haunting portrait of a particular place and its multi-layered histories and facts, finding a new way of understanding human protest.

Curator Aser El Saqqa of Arts Canteen, London, said, “The range of work in Traces and Revelations is an impressive one, it harks back to each artist’s earlier work and past lives.

For both Harb and Joha, Traces and Revelations opens up an imaginary, parallel space in which to consider ideas of place, identity and belonging.”

Oriental Museum Curator, Dr Craig Barclay, said, “It is very exciting to be able to bring to Durham such compelling work by two wonderful artists. It is a great opportunity for our visitors to experience first- hand the creativity and vision of artists from this often misunderstood region.”

Traces and Revelations runs until Sunday, 5th October.
