In Wafa Ghnaim’s curatorial debut, TatreezInheritance examines the presence of Palestinian embroidery in the United States through a diasporic lens, asserting and affirming the power of material culture and art history in preserving a nation’s identity. Over the past 75 years, the dispossession, displacement and dispersion of the Palestinian people across the globe has circulated precious textiles and dresses throughout Europe and North America. At the heart of Tatreez Inheritance is a collection of historic and contemporary dresses, accessories and artifacts that highlights a tremendous inheritance — one of cultural heritage — assured to every Palestinian across the globe.
