Artist Details


Iman Issa (born 1979, Cairo) is an artist living and working in Cairo and New York. Recent group and solo exhibitions include: The Ungovernables, New Museum, New York (2012); Seeing is Believing, KW Institute of Contemporary Art, Berlin (2011); Material, Rodeo, Istanbul (2011); Short Stories, SculptureCenter, New York (2011); and Propaganda by Monuments, Contemporary Image Collective, Cairo (2011). Her video work has been screened at several venues including Transmediale, Berlin; Tate Modern, London; Spacex, Exeter; Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool; and Bidoun Artists Cinema, Art Dubai, Dubai.

In her practice Issa deals with questions of language, place, methodically questioning the relationship between history, the city, personal cognition and experience. Lyrical and encrypted, her works pose systematic questions, a little off-centre, insinuating narrative and always resisting placement or definition.
