Mounira Al Solh (b. 1978) lives and works between the Netherlands and Lebanon.
Mounira Al Solh’s practice embraces painting, embroidery, performative gestures, video and video installations. Irony and self-reflectivity are central strategies for her work, which explores feminist issues, tracks patterns of microhistory, is socially engaged, and can be political and escapist all at once. Al Solh studied at the Lebanese University, Beirut, the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam, and was resident at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam (2007-8). Her most recent exhibitions include solos at the Art Institute, Chicago (2018), SALT, Istanbul (2016), KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2014), plus participation in dOCUMENTA 14, Athens & Kassel (2017); 56th Venice Biennial, Italy (2015); New Museum, New York (2014); Homeworks, Beirut (2013); and the 2009 Istanbul Biennial.
