Majd Alloush Syria, b. 1996

Majd Alloush (b. Dubai, 1996) is a Syrian artist based in Dubai. He works with printmaking, moving images, sculpture, photography and installation to radically re-think his outlook on various subjects. His documentation style of art complements his vision towards the subjects he adopts, while politics, self-exploration and psychology drive him. The human psyche against nature, politics against conscience, and time against space are contradictions that Majd sees as central to human existence through art.

 

Majd is currently pursuing an MFA in Art and Media at NYUAD. He graduated from the University of Sharjah in 2018, majoring in Fine Arts. His work has been a part of several exhibitions both in the UAE and internationally, including Pressure, Beit Al Mamzar, Dubai (2021); Made in the Emirates, Sotheby’s, Dubai (2021); the Sharjah Islamic Arts Festival, Sharjah Art Museum (2021), Intimaa: Belonging, curated by UAE Unlimited at NYUAD Art Gallery, Abu Dhabi (2020); Sharjah Calligraphy Biennial (2020); Vantage Point Sharjah (2018 and 2019); the 35th Emirates Fine Arts Society Annual Exhibition, Sharjah Art Museum, Sharjah (2018); Kunst im Dialogue, Landshut, Germany (2018); and Rent’s Due, Unit 5 Gallery, London, UK. In addition, his works are found in prominent public and private collections in the UAE, including Abu Dhabi Executive Office in Abu Dhabi; and the collection of Mr. Abdulmonem Alserkal, the owner of Alserkal Avenue in Dubai.
