Curating Art: “PRE-EXODUS” – VR-experience and artist talk

27 Apr – 30 Apr 2022,

Leila Khoury Nimry was thirteen years old when she fled her home in Haifa, Palestine during the Nakba in 1948. In PRE-EXODUS she shares the memories of her childhood bedroom, illustrated and developed into a virtual reality experience, created by artist Solenne Tadros. The work activates questions of memory, intergenerational trauma, forced displacement and loss of land. 

Artist talk 27 April 18.00

An artist talk on the evening 27 April with Solenne Tadros (b. 1996, Jordan) will introduce the work PRE-EXODUS and invite a conversation on its related themes.
