Biography

Installation view at Green Art Gallery, Dubai, 2019. Photo by Anna Shtraus.

Shadi Habib Allah’s practice ranges from film, sculpture and drawing to installation. While each projects defines its own terms based on research and physical engagement, a common thread is opening up suggestive modes of navigation across circulation networks of people, technologies, objects, images and economy to examine ideas of use and value and the structures that hold them in place.

Born in Jerusalem, Palestine in 1977, Shadi Habib Allah received a BFA from Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in 2003 and an MFA from Columbia University in 2010.

Recent solo exhibitions include: Free Rein, Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, Scotland (2019); Hammer Projects: Shadi Habib Allah, Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, USA (2018); Put to Rights, The Renaissance Society, University of Chicago, Chicago, USA (2018); Daga'a, Green Art Gallery, Dubai, UAE (2017); Biscuits and Green Sox Maaike, Reena Spaulings Fine Art, New York (2017); 30KG Shine, Rodeo, London (2015).
