Artist Talk by Mahmoud Khaled
Part of the series of events Indicated by Signs
Wednesday September 30, 2009 at 8 pm
Language: Arabic with English translation
Mahmoud Khaled will deliver a presentation on his work in a form that will attempt to examine the camouflaged nature of his work in the virtual and the actual zones along the path of some of the projects he has worked on in the last four years. Most of these projects have at their core a thorough exploration of the document, in its many variations of official, social, historical, and personal. The document, as he sees it, can be an image, a text, an event, online materials or even a space. Khaled makes use of video, found objects, and various photographic resources, to test the boundaries between the personal, the political, the historical and the social domains. His projects tend to examine the often coded and powerful socio-political trajectories that run through our daily lives.
Mahmoud Khaled lives and works in Alexandria, Egypt, where he studied painting, graduating with a BFA in 2004. He is the recipient of a number of residencies including the Funen Art Academy, Odense, Denmark, Gasworks, London, and the Montalvo Arts Center, California. Khaled’s approach to art-making is both process oriented and multidisciplinary, producing works in video, photography, text, and site specific installation. He has participated in a number of international group exhibitions and projects including Trapped in Amber (Oslo, 2009), Biacs3 (Seville, 2008), PhotoCairo 4 (Cairo, 2008), All Clear (Salzburg, 2007), Out of Place (Beirut, 2007), and the 1st Biennial of the Canaries (2006).
