Zawyeh Gallery is an independent visual arts gallery founded in Ramallah, Palestine, in 2013. Zawyeh’s mission is to promote emerging and established Palestinian artists – from Palestine and the Diaspora – through various thematic exhibitions at home and aboard. Zawyeh showcases excellent contemporary and modern Palestinian art internationally through the participation in art fairs, exhibitions and bespoke art projects. Additionally, Zawyeh actively supports young artists in growing their art and portfolios.
Since its establishment, Zawyeh has organised many solo and collective exhibitions, across a variety of mediums including painting, sculpture, installation, video and photography. Zawyeh believes that resilience in the face of adversity in Palestine engenders creativity and artistic excellence.
