Labour of Love: Embroidering Palestinian History

12 October 2022 - 28 January 2023

Labor of Love cover

The exhibition will take visitors on a journey of discovery of tatreez embroidery as it was woven into the social, economic and political fabric of Palestinian society, through different historical periods. The exhibition elucidates the symbols of traditional embroidered Palestinian dress (thobe) and explores tatreez through the lenses of gender, labour, commodification, and class.

The exhibition thus traces the shift of tatreez from personal practice, made with love, to a national symbol, and onto a product circulating in the global marketplace.

The exhibition is curated by Palestinian Museum Collections Manager Baha Jubeh and draws from collections of Qatar Museums and the Palestinian Museum.

This is also part of the Qatar-MENASA 2022 Year of Culture.
