Event Details

Khaled Hourani questions in this exhibition the difference between individuality and collectiveness. He captures moments prior to or during demonstrations and echoes them on his canvas with much focus on the individuality of members of the crowd. In this body of work the individuals seem to take different directions in a constantly moving motion as if each is busy within his/her mind. Each seems to be immersed in an action of disperse within what appears to be a collective action of protest.

Khaled Hourani was born in Hebron in 1965, and he lives and works in Ramallah. He was the Artistic Director of the International Academy of Art – Palestine in 2007-2010, and its Director from 2010 to 2013. He previously worked as General Director of the Fine Arts Department in the Palestinian Ministry of Culture (2004- 2006). Hourani is the initiator of the 2011 “Picasso in Palestine” project and “the Stone Distance to Jerusalem” project. He has also curated and organized several exhibitions. Hourani participated in several exhibitions including the Sharjah Biennial in 2011; an exhibition at the Times Museum in Guangzhou, China; the 2nd CAFA Biennale Museum in Beijing; DOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel and KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin. Hourani writes critically in the field of art. Recently he was awarded the Leonore Annenberg Prize, Creative Time for Art and Social Change in New York City.
