Dor Guez: 100 Steps to the Mediterranean
Presented by Rose Art Museum at Brandeis University and
September 20 - December 9, 2012
100 Steps to the Mediterranean, a solo exhibition of photography and video installations by Dor Guez, one of the most compelling emerging artists in the Middle East, will open on Sept. 20 from 5 to 8 p.m. It will be the artist's first major museum exhibition in the United States.
100 Steps to the Mediterranean explores the overlooked histories of the Christian Palestinian minority in the Middle East by tracing the memories and present experiences of three generations of the artist's family. Jerusalem-born Guez interweaves their stories with renderings of specific sites in contemporary Israel that are central to their lives — the old town of Lod, Ben Shemen Forest, and the Mediterranean shore in Jaffa.
