Mophradat’s Consortium Commissions::
Jasmina Metwaly & Yazan Khalili
From the KW Institute for Contemporary Art:
A pioneering model for co-commissioning ambitious new work initiated by Mophradat, the Consortium Commissions exemplify the organization’s inventive approach to supporting artists from the Arab world. KW Institute for Contemporary Art presents part of the first edition of the new program with two solo exhibitions by Jasmina Metwaly (born in 1982, PL) and Yazan Khalili (born in 1981, SY).
Jasmina Metwaly presents Anbar (2019), a three-channel video installation with textile components, addressing the semantics of military uniforms in the aftermath of the 2011 Egyptian revolution. The work is organized around three characters—a onetime soldier, a tailor, and an activist filmmaker—who each demonstrate particular ties to the Egyptian military.
The exhibition by Jasmina Metwaly is part of the Consortium Commissions—a project initiated by Mophradat. It is presented in association with Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (US).
