Artist Talk: Ali Cherri
September 27, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Working across a wide range of different media, Lebanese artist Ali Cherri (b. 1976) has steadily explored his native land as a political, geographical, climatic and religious territory. Whether investigating archaeological and sacred sites, borders or seismic fault lines, Cherri has searched for new ways to map and imagine Lebanon and its place within the Middle East. His recent solo exhibitions include Somniculus at Jeu de Paume, Paris and CAPC musée d’art contemporain de Bordeaux (2017); Galerie Imane Farès (Oct. 2017); and Sursock Museum, Beirut (2016). His films have been shown in International Film Festivals including New Directors/New Films MoMA NY; Cinéma du Réel, Centre Pompidou; CPH:DOX (winner of NewVision Award) amongst others. Ali Cherri lives and works in Paris and Beirut.
