“Hani Zurob’s practice provides an important voice in contemporary Palestinian culture, as well as a significant contribution to the creation of Arab Aesthetic.  Ultimately though, while Zurob’s art gives powerful expression to the Palestinian collective experience, it can also be seen in the context of more universal themes of personal identity and embraces humanity beyond the Palestinian context.” Black Dog Publishing Limited

  “Between exits is the first monograph to trace the artistic trajectory of Palestinian artist Hani Zurob, from his initial paintings produced in Palestine , through to his most recent works, developed during the artist’s exile in France.

The volume is organised chronologically  to offer the reader a comprehensive insight into Zurob’s key paintings and series from the last decade. Painter and writer Kamal Boullata takes the reader through Zurob’s art and carefully reveals how each body of work, created in changing periods of the artist’s life, reflects evolving approaches to the  understanding of self as well as strategies of collective belonging which the  artist’s work constantly probes…. –  wrote Black Dog Publishing Limited –
