Dalia Khalife (b. 1992) is a Beirut based artist. Her practice examines psychophysiological happenings as well as elements of spectacle and play within power structures, social events, and rituals, that manifest as primitive moments of ambiguity and shared vulnerability. Sometimes raw, unexpected humor and absurdist sensibilities appear. Throughout the work, the unpredictability that derives from collaborations with artists and individuals are an essential part of the work.
She was a recipient of the HWP Fellowship of Ashkal Alwan in Beirut (2019), a resident at SeMA NANJI Residency, Seoul Museum of Art in Seoul (2018) and a resident at Penthouse Art Residency in Brussels (2018). Recent group exhibitions include Mediterranea 19 Young Artists Biennale, San Marino (2021), HWP Open Studios, Beirut (2019), ‘Shifting Surfaces’, SeMA NANJI Residency, Seoul (2018), participation in Manifesta 12 Bienniale for ‘Across The Border’, Palermo (2018)
