Nassar’s first solo exhibition at The Third Line gallery, and debut in the Gulf Region
The Third Line, Alserkal Avenue.
January 16 - February 27, 2019.
Jordan Nassar’s first solo exhibition at The Third Line gallery, For Your Eyes, treats traditional craft as a medium to examine cultural heritage and emigrant nostalgia.
Working with Hebron women, drawing on the traditional craftsmanship passed throughout their families, the hand-embroidered series is a contrast of tradition with Jordan’s modern-day aesthetic.
Landscapes are revealed amongst the geometric prints on areas pre determined on the canvas by Jordan. Random colour and landscape selection, shows the contrast between to what Jordan refers to as his ‘Palestinian-ness’, finding his belonging in a place where he felt he didn’t belong when growing up in Palestine.
Jordan is a Palestinian-American living and working in New York City, addressing the intersection of craft, language, history, politics and technology through his work. His exhibition will be shown in The Third Gallery until February 27th.
