Dala Nasser (b. 1990 Tyre, Lebanon) works through abstraction and alternative forms of image-making, applying an interdisciplinary approach to both artworks and film. Dala’s work examines the urgent need to politically and psychosocially account for dramatic environmental change, centering her practice around materiality and process, producing works that respond to their physical and contextual components, evolving autonomously over time.
She received her BFA’16 from the Slade School of Fine Arts and her MFA’21 from Yale School of Art with focus on painting. She was awarded the Boise Travel Scholarship and the Sursock Museum’s 32nd Salon D’Automne Emerging Artist Prize. Selected exhibitions include Surface Work at Victoria Miro, London, 2018; The Pain of Others, Ghebaly Gallery, Los Angeles, 2018; An Unpredictable Expression of Human Potential, ACT II of the Sharjah Biennial 13, 2017. Upcoming exhibitions include a solo show at Gallery Deborah Schamoni in Munich, Germany this September.
