“My art addresses my personal experiences, my own body, the harsh and oppressive political situation in which I exist. But my art is also very much impacted by timeless spiritual concerns and the immense mystery of human existence, images that come to me in my dreams, my nightmares, my imagination.” —Raida Adon.

Displaced: Raida Adon’s Strangeness presents Raida Adon’s first solo exhibition in the United States and first museum show outside of Israel. Born into a multi-faith Palestinian family in the bi-national city of Acre, Israel, Raida Adon is an acclaimed multi-media artist, television, theater and film actress, and director.

Her 2018 video Strangeness, prominently featured in this exhibition, invokes experiences of displacement, as well as enduring journeys in search of Home. Interweaving a rich array of archetypal, historical, and biographical threads, Strangeness creates riveting audiovisual fabrics, which reflect human fragility and resilience, agony and hope. The work unveils harsh truths about our broken world through the prism of Adon’s unique, unbridled imagination.
