Points of DeparturePart of the 2013 Shubbak Festival in London (22nd June to 6th july), Points of Departure presents new commissions by Palestinian artists Jumana Emil Abboud, Bashar Alhroub, Bisan Abu Eisheh, and UK artists Jeremy Hutchison and Olivia Plender - all of whom undertook eight-week residencies in London and Ramallah respectively. In relation to themes raised by the project and the works produced, the exhibition also features a seminal work by Ramallah-based artists Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme. The exhibition has been curated by Rebecca Heald with the support of Mirna Bamieh, and culminates a year of collaboration between ArtSchool Palestine, the British Council and the ICA.
