This November, the Glass Tank presents an exhibition featuring parts of the The Palestinian History Tapestry. The exhibition will be held in The Lab space and focuses specifically on the panels relating to Gaza. The Palestinian History Tapestry illustrates the history of the land of Palestine, from the Neolithic era to the present. It has been made by Palestinian women within and outside Palestine, many of them in refugee camps across the Middle East. The Palestinian History Tapestry is an expression of ‘sumud’ (steadfastness), and solidarity. It draws attention to the history and heritage of the Palestinian people and their land, and to their internationally confirmed right to return to the home from which they were expelled in 1948. The tapestry is likely the largest embroidered collection of illustrative work ever produced by Palestinian embroiderers.
