The Jerusalem Fund Gallery invites you to the first interactive exhibition, WORDS, featuring the graphic art of Palestinian–American Rajie Cook, with special guest, Palestinian-American performance poet and human rights activist Remi Kanazi, from New York City.

Rajie Cook, a renowned graphic designer whose work has been collected by the Smithsonian Institution, features graphic designs, film and sculptural assemblage on the theme of the power of words as a force of justice. Audience members are encouraged to participate in the exhibition at the opening. Viewers will be able to interact with the works and in some cases, become part of them.

Remi Kanazi edited a volume of hip hop, poetry and art, Poets for Palestine (2008), and published the first collection of his own poetry, Poetic Injustice: Writings on Resistance and Palestine, in 2011. For more information on his performances, see http://www.poeticinjustice.net/.
