This exhibition explores the identity of Palestinians within Israel through the work of Kamal Aljafari, Aissa Deebi and Dor Guez. In 1948, when the State of Israel was established, some Palestinians were given the option of Israeli citizenship. “Today they make up 20 percent of the Israeli population but are still a minority that lives in a present state of oppression, recalling the physical and political displacement of the past,” says curator Noah Simblist, chair of the Meadows Division of Art.
