The Palestinian Museum, which opened in May 2016 near Birzeit in the West Bank, is hosting its debut exhibition, entitled “Jerusalem Lives,” exploring various facets of the city from its history and political status to routine affairs.

About 50 Palestinian and international artists have come together to use different forms of mediums, examining the evolution of Jerusalem and its metaphoric link to globalization and its failures, writes

Curated by Reem Fadda, the exhibition seeks to spur cultural and artistic creativity in Palestinians as they battle the hardships of Israeli occupation, notes Al-Fanar Media.
