Arts of Palestine, People's Palace, Glasgow. Thistlmely exhibition of Palestinian material culture is a welcome opportunity to gain insight into a society which is almost exclusively represented in the media through stereotypes of violence and poverty. The forced clearance of the Palestinian people from their land is a legacy of English colonial rule, and it is therefore appropriate that the Arts of Palestine should be brought to the People's Palace and Glasgow Green, home of many struggles for political rights, during the European City of Culture. Organised by the Palestinian Red Crescent Society (the Islamic Red Cross) in association with councillor Alex Mosson and the District Council's Festival Unit, this resolutely apolitical

exhibition features the country’s three ways of life: city, village and bedouin, and is laid out around a village kitchen, a city parlour and a bedouin tent. Palestine is known for ornate glassware, soap and marble, which are exported worldwide. Food, decorated ceramics and much inlaid mother of pearl work from Bethlehem are featured. While male labourand organisation of time would appear to

women and their work. This is revealed through the consistent presence of beautiful ornate embroidery covering cushions, table-cloths, bags and the national costumes from different regions.

This is not immediately apparent to the visitor however, given the total lack of historical background which leaves the exhibition in a timeless limbo. In separating the crafts of Palestine from the other trappings of daily life television, jeans, radios. cars, music— a particular ‘idea’ of Palestine is put forward which would read differently there (idealised, traditional) to here (native, backward). This does not do justice to a nation with an ancient history, universities and literature, and distinguished citizens at home and abroad. Some discussion of the political economy would greatly help the non-Palestinian visitor, and a map would be of interest, given the number of sites which feature in the Bible and are therefore also part of our heritage.

Coinciding with the exhibition, Mayor Elias Freig of Bethlehem and Mayor Mousafa Natshe of Hebron (capital of the Occupied Territories) visited Glasgow to discuss the twinning of Glasgow with Hebron. (Fiona
