5 March - 8 April 2005
Jacqueline Salloum is a Palestinian American film-maker, printmaker and sculptor and her exhibition included examples of each of her areas of work. Jacqueline's concerns are centred around the issue of the Israeli occupation of Palestine and racist depictions of people from Arab nations. One film in progress was shown, which is a documentary about the Hip-Hop scene in Palestine and Israel and one band featured in the film, the Palestinian Rappers (PR), were flown in from Gaza to perform in Void at the opening night. The British Council funded PR's visit to Ireland. Following their performance at the opening the rappers performed at Sandino's Café Bar in Derry and The Pavillion in Belfast.
