  Walid Raad. Civilizationally, we do not dig holes to bury ourselves
Walid Raad
12 October 2015 - 31 January 2016
The Museum of Modern Art | New York, NY, USA
Walid Raad is the first comprehensive American survey of the artist Walid Raad (b. 1967, Lebanon). The exhibition brings together over 200 works across various mediums, including photography, video, sculpture, and performance.
Walid Raad focuses on two of the artist’s projects: The Atlas Group (1989 - 2004), a 15-year project exploring the contemporary history of Lebanon, and Scratching on things I could disavow (2007 - ongoing), which examines the recent emergence in the Arab world of art fairs, biennials, museums, and galleries alongside the geopolitical, economic, and military conflicts consuming the region. The exhibition also includes a series of walkthroughs with the artist.
Walid Raad is organized by Eva Respini, Barbara Lee Chief Curator, The Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston, with Katerina Stathopoulou, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Photography, MoMA. It will travel to the ICA/Boston and to the Museo Jumex, Mexico City.
