Solo exhibition at Occupy London's "Justice Court" Jan 2012

I was invited to do an exhibition of my Palestine work at Occupy London's "Justice Court" squat in Shoreditch. I used some of my Olive Harvest story as well as a room with the theme of "existence is resistance". It was really interesting being able to talk to the public about the Palestinian situation and I was really glad to been a part of the Occupy movement.
Massive thanks to Evie Kendall for helping me curate the exhibition and to Occupy London for hosting it.
