Forbidden Colors
Artists and Censorship
A group show with 30 artists
exploring artistic suppression in all media

The Jerusalem Fund Gallery Al-Quds
Contemporary Middle East and Arab American Art

June 3—August 12, 2016

This exhibition explores the concept of artists’ responses to various forms of censorship or political pressure specific to artistic production.
The show takes its name from an Israeli law forbidding artwork of "political significance" which banned art comprising the four colors of the Palestinian flag, red, green, white and black. Palestinians were arrested for creating or displaying such artwork. The ban was lifted after the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993.
