Returning Forward: Palestinian Artists

Post-Paris coverage of the #BoycottDivestSanction movement includes profiles of Palestinian fashion designers and musicians. Now, we spotlight six contemporary Palestinian artists. The cover image belongs to Dalia Yassin, an artist based in Sweden, and is available for solidarity fundraising on her site. I encourage you to follow through and witness these artists’ oeuvre firsthand.
