Join artist Jordan Nassar for a visit in his studio in New York and a conversation about his work. Nassar will give us an introduction into stitching, show us his latest pieces and talk about future landscapes. He will highlight our artist commission, the Tatreez design and his inspirations from Palestinian culture.
New York based mixed media artist of Palestinian descent Jordan Nassar embroiders landscape compositions, which are framed by and built up through repeating patterns adapted from traditional Palestinian motifs. His work imagines an idyllic space: the sort of utopian vision of Palestine held by the displaced constituents that comprise the region’s diaspora.
