Rayyane Tabet was born in 1983. The artist lives and works in Beirut. Drawing from experience and self-directed research, Tabet explores stories that offer alternative understandings of major sociopolitical events through individual narratives. Informed by his training in architecture and sculpture, Tabet’s work investigates paradoxes in the built environment and its history by way of installations that reconstitute the perception of physical and temporal distance.
His most recent and upcoming solo shows include exhibitions at the Walker Art Center (Minneapolis, MN, US); the Storefront for Art and Architecture (New York, US); the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York); Parasol Unit (London, UK); Carré d’Art (Nîmes, France); Kunstverein (Hamburg, Germany); and Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art (Rotterdam, Netherlands). His work has been featured in Manifesta 12 (Palermo, Italy); the 21st Biennale of Sydney (Australia); the 15th Istanbul Biennial (Turkey); the 32nd São Paulo Biennial (Brazil); the 6th Marrakech Biennale (Morocco); the 10th and 12th Sharjah Biennials (UAE); and the 2nd New Museum Triennial (New York).
