Mophradat’s Consortium Commissions: Jasmina Metwaly & Yazan Khalili

As part of the first edition of the Consortium Commissions, KW and Mophradat present two solo exhibitions of the artists Jasmina Metwaly (born in 1982, PL) and Yazan Khalili (born in 1981, SY), each of whom will present a new moving image work. Metwaly's three-channel video installation with textile components addresses the semantics of military uniforms in the aftermath of the 2011 Egyptian revolution, and Khalili's video installation is based on his long-standing engagement with digital archiving in times of political unrest. A pioneering model for co- commissioning ambitious new work, the Consortium Commissions exemplify Mophradat’s inventive approach to supporting artists throughout the Arab world.
