Gallery One and Khalil Sakakini Cultural Center were pleased to invite you to the opening of the solo exhibition by the artist Wafa Hourani “The Future of Disappearance” on Tuesday the 24th of May 2016 from 6:00 – 9:00 pm at Gallery One & Khalil Sakakini Cultural Center. The exhibit included a collective performance of “The Cemetery of Things” at 8:00 pm @ Khalil Sakakini Cultural Center followed by a reception. The exhibition ran until Thursday 23rd of June 2016.
This exhibition encompasses a selection of works that perhaps offer a glimpse at Wafa’s artistic journey in the last fifteen years, as well as an overview of the central themes, which drove his transition from cinema to visual art. There is a statement made on the personal and collective memory, focusing on the role of imagination and the wisdom behind humor, especially necessary elements when describing the brutal reality of Palestinian life, which to this day remains under the most bizarre and insolent military occupations known to mankind.
