Knowledge Exchange Fellowship:

In 2018 and 2019 OmarJoseph Nasser-Khoury (Palestine, ITP Fellow 2013) returned to the British Museum on a Knowledge Exchange Fellowship.  Omar’s project was to work with curators and collections to document and photograph the Palestinian textiles at the Museum’s Blythe House.  He was also able to choose some textiles for display in the Arab World cabinet in the new Albukhary Foundation Gallery of the Islamic world and give a lecture in partnership with the Palestine Exploration Fund.

While at the British Museum, OmarJoseph, alongside Zeina Klink-Hoppe, Phillis Bishop Curator for the Modern Middle East at the British Museum and Felicity Cobbing, Chief Executive and Curator at the Palestine Exploration Society made an insightful and informative film on the collection and what he’s achieved in his time at the Museum. This project was generously funded by the British Council (Occupied Palestinian Territories), the Marie-Louise von Motesiczky Charitable Trust and the Palestine Exploration Fund.  And special thanks go to Sian Toogood, AV & Production Manager and Roux Malherbe, Producer, both of the British Museum, for putting this wonderful film together.
