Mounira Al Solh

Mounira Al Solh is an artist who works with video and video installations, painting and drawing, embroidery, and performative gestures. Irony and self-reflectivity are central strategies for her work, which explores feminist issues, tracks patterns of microhistory, is socially engaged, and can be political and escapist all at once. She studied painting at the Lebanese University in Beirut and Fine Arts at Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam where she was also Research Resident at Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten. Her work has been shown i.a. at documenta 14, Athens/Kassel (2017), 56th Venice Biennial (2015), The New Museum’s Triennial, New York (2012), Manifesta 8, Murcia (2010/11), and 11th Istanbul Biennial (2009). In 2018, her solo show If I Can’t Dance I Don’t Want to Be Part of Your Revolution will be shown at the Art Institute of Chicago.
