Artist Helen Zughaib has been engaged in reminding her viewers about the price of conflict since before the Arab Spring. “I think of myself as somebody who’s talking about the people who end up paying the price for war. It’s women and children.” For this exhibition, she has created objects in mixed media-- plates, shoes, tiles, wooden boxes, recalling the ways of life left behind or destroyed by war.

On view at Gallery Al-Quds, April 21 - May 31, 2017
