An exhibit opening this weekend in Detroit wants to show the complex relationship Palestinian artists have to their homeland.

The show, called “Preoccupations: Palestinian Landscapes,” opens at the Holding House in Detroit on Saturday, January 11.

Some have never been there, some live there but are under siege, some are occupied, some have this really deep longing to go there, [and] others have this mythical idea of what this place is.”  - Kathy Zarur, curator

There are some many different relationships that Palestinians have with the land,” curator Kathy Zarur says. “Some have never been there, some live there but are under siege, some are occupied, some have this really deep longing to go there, [and] others have this mythical idea of what this place is.”
