Palestine and the Art of Resistance

Wednesday, February 19, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

McLaren Complex - MC 251

 Free and open to the public!

 Palestinian-American mural artist and San Francisco native Chris Gazaleh will discuss the significance of art in nonviolent movements of resistance for Palestinians. Gazaleh—an artist, educator, and activist dedicated to promoting cultural, political, and social awareness from a Palestinian-American perspective rooted in social justice—will discuss how his art, from murals to illustrations and graffiti-style pieces to clothing designs, is meant to complexify understandings of home, diaspora, resistance, and identity.

This event is presented by the Swig Program in Jewish Studies and Social Justice, and co-sponsored by the Department of Art + Architecture.
