Riverside, Calif. — For the second time this year the University of California, Riverside, will be featured on KPCC's popular "Talk of the City" with Kitty Felde. After visiting the campus this past February the show’s editor became interested in UCR/California Museum of Photography’s current exhibition "ONE GROUND 4 Palestinian & 4 Israeli Filmmakers." The exhibition, which will run through June 15, 2003, gathers the works of eight exceptional contemporary Israeli and Palestinian artists living in New York, London, Paris, Palestine and Israel.

On Friday, April 11, 2003, from 2 to 2:30 p.m., Talk of the City will feature a conversation with the exhibition’s curator, Mitra Abbaspour, Israeli filmmaker Avi Mograbi, and Palestinian filmmaker Emily Jacir. They will discuss the exhibition, the inspiration and purpose behind their work, their perspectives on the situation in the region of Israel/Palestine, and the relevance and importance of art as a forum for dialogue.

You will be able to hear the discussion live from 2 to 2:30 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on KPCC radio, 89.9 FM, or on the web at , click on “Listen Live” link.

Featuring the films of: AVI MOGRABI, B.Z. GOLDBERG, ELIA SULEIMAN, EMILY JACIR, MICHAL ROVNER, MONA HATOUM, ORI GERSHT, & RASHID MASHARAWI, ONE GROUND differentiates itself from other exhibitions concerning the Middle East, shifting the focus from social documentary footage that depicts the literal events of political conflict to the presentation of metaphorical works that address the more conceptual and universal issues of exile, loss, belonging, identity, and home.
