About This Item

Saqi Books, April 2009. Trade Paperback. New. 'Boullata takes the reader close to the struggle of those visionary, obstinate Palestinian artists who create so that their anonymous heroic land with its ancestral olive trees may survive.'--John Berger 'It is rare and exciting to find an art book full of persuasive, urgent visual imagery whose language and strategies are ultimately unfamiliar, whatever their surface appearance, to the complacent western eye. And it is refreshing to sense that the pull of much of the work derives from and points back to Palestinian culture itself, rather than being necessarily part of the self-conscious east-west discourse which so preoccupied Edward Said. As such it represents another advance in international understanding of Palestinian history and aspiration, but determinedly through the artist's eye.'--Guardian UK This diverse selection features pre-1948 paintings alongside contemporary media works, highlighting the political concerns of Palestinian artists and their unique contributions to modern Arab culture. Works by artists who live in Palestine are examined alongside those of artists from the Palestinian diaspora. Kamal Boullata is a painter and writer. His writings on Palestinian art have appeared in numerous art and academic periodicals, and he recently edited Belonging and Globalisation: Critical Essays on Contemporary Art and Culture (Saqi Books). Published on the sixtieth year of the Palestinian 'Nakba,' or 'Catastrophe,' with a preface by John Berger.

About Hennessey + Ingalls

Since its founding in 1963, Hennessey + Ingalls has grown to fill a unique niche in American retailing. We are the largest art, architecture and design bookstore in the western United States, and probably the largest retail operation in the country dealing just with books on the visual arts. Founded by Reginald Hennessey as an outlet for rare and out-of-print architecture books and is still family-owned and managed by his son, Mark Hennessey.
