Jackie Reem Salloum is a New York based artist and filmmaker who draws inspiration from the humble perseverance of her family’s struggle in their homeland—Palestine—and as immigrants in the U.S.
Her work focuses on challenging the stereotypes of Arabs in the media through film and multimedia art. She has directed several shorts exploring this issue, including Planet of the Arabs, which received the International Editing Award at the 2005 CinemaTexas Film Festival and was an official selection in that year’s Sundance Film Festival.
This piece of art was selected to be part of the "Justice Matters" exhibit, a joint project of the Middle East Children's Alliance, Alliance Graphics, and the Berkeley Arts Center. The collection was first exhibited in 2005 and includes the works of the following artists: Ayed Arafa, Jesus Barraza, Eric Drooker, Ala Ebtekar, John Halaka, Mildred Howard, Lisa Kokin, Rafik Majzoub, Toxqui Perez, Jackie Salloum, Josh Short, Christine Wong, Holly Wong, and Jos Sances.
