The Walls of Nablus event image

  • Location: Interurban Gallery - 1 East Hastings (at Carrall)
  • Opening: Thursday, April 5, 6pm-9pm
  • Exhibition runs until April 28
  • Gallery Hours: Wednesday to Saturday, 1pm-5pm

The Interurban Gallery and ISM Vancouver present a photo-documentation exhibit entitled THE WALLS OF NABLUS: From The Romans To Hamas by FREEXERO.COM.

THE WALLS OF NABLUS documents the shocking destruction of this ancient city in Palestine by the illegal Israeli occupation as well as the ongoing resistance to the occupation.

The images reveal walls sprayed with graffitti and bullet holes. Layers of posters showing martyred fighters mix with politicians, cell phone ads and local event announcements.

Squat roman arches, narrow alleys, barricaded doors and piles of rubble tell the ongoing story of occupations, demolitions, alterations, repair and conflict.

The people of Nablus have been under brutal economic and military siege for 6 years. But like the walls of the city, the people's resistance and reslience remains strong.

  • FREEXERO.COM is a collective commited to confronting cultural and political elitism.
  • FREEXERO.COM is a collaboration of art and politics, a "Temporary Autonomous Zone" for conversations, performance and revelations.

"I believe this was a bad day not only for our family, but a bad day for human rights, for humanity, for the rule of law and also for the country of Israel," her mother, Cindy Corrie, said after the verdict.\
