Larissa Sansour and Yazan Khalili will participate in the third edition of Qalandiya International, in an exhibition entitled This Sea is Mine centred on the issue of Palestinian "Return". "What is happening around us makes it more crucial than ever before to debate the concept, its positioning and its meanings, on many levels: political, cultural and humanistic."
For this year's edition, Sansour will present a new performative piece of the burial of porcelain in various parts of Palestine and Khalili will exhibit a new work entitled I, The Artwork. The exhibition will be spread across several venues in Palestine, as well as Amman, Beirut and London from 5 - 31 October, 2016.
Founded in 2012, Qalandiya International is a collaborative contemporary art event that is held every two years across Palestinian cities and villages. The event aims to place Palestine on the world's cultural map by producing a series of art exhibitions, as well as performances, film screenings, workshops and tours, that open up channels for dialogue and exchange, both locally and internationally.
