The Exodus and Odyssey


Welcome to the online exhibition of ‘Palestine: The Exodus and Odyssey’ by Ismail and Tamam Shammout.

As you will soon find out, this exhibit illustrates the plight of Palestinians since the creation of the State of Israel in 1948. It is the artists’ impressions as seen by being a part of that experience. You can learn more about the artists and their experiences by clicking the relevant links available.

Some details before you begin:

The paintings within this exhibit are large wall murals in actual size (200cm x 160cm). Therefore close-up shots are available for different sections of each painting to enable you to receive an enhanced effect.

As you enter the tour, you will be taken through the artists’ paintings in series; as they have experienced and portrayed the events.

Now you should be ready to begin. You can start by taking at look at the introductory information, or go straight to the tours. Take your time to navigate through and enjoy the experience. Feel free to give your opinions in the Guest Book once you are finished.
