Palestinian folk fashion presents a means to exploring Palestinian social history as a whole, and what women’s work, in particular, embodies at the center of this history. It provides the basis to delve into how tatreez is woven into the social, economic, and political fabric of society across different historical periods

Date:

  • 12 October 2022 – 28 January 2023
    Saturday to Thursday: 9 am - 7 pm
    Fridays: 1:30 - 7 pm

Location: Qatar Museums Gallery - Katara

Curated by Baha Jubeh of The Palestinian Museum, and part of Qatar-MENASA 2022 Year of Culture, Labour of Love will investigate the symbolism of the practice, shining a light on the Palestinian thobe – a traditionally embroidered dress. Through works from the collections of Qatar Museums and the Palestinian Museum, it seeks to explore the legacy of tatreez through the lenses of gender, labour, commodity, and class.

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

Sponsorship support for Labour of Love is provided by Ashraf Abu Issa, Ameed Hamed Al Hussein, Rami Elnatsha, and Seedeco.
