Mahmoud Khaled

Artist Talk

30/06/22 7pm


RSVP below for this in person event.

Join artist Mahmoud Khaled and writer Omar Kholeif as they discuss Khaled’s new commission and solo exhibition Fantasies on a Found Phone, Dedicated to the Man Who Lost it.

The conversation will shed light on Mahmoud’s practice and his interest in repositioning the museological notions of a house museum in a contemporary queer lens. Speaking through the installation at The Mosaic Rooms, the conversation will delve deeper into the artists’ exploration of desire and anxiety, dream and reality.
