About

John Hansard Gallery is excited to present a solo exhibition by acclaimed conceptual artist and filmmaker Shezad Dawood. Comprising films, neon works, sculpture, and a newly commissioned large-scale textile painting, Dawood’s practice operates somewhere between the real and the surreal, often creating a dialogue between two worlds and two realities, both past and present.

Appropriating many of his ideas from modern European and American aesthetics, Dawood generates a critical examination of identity. His travels and conclusive research, coupled with his interest in the fantastical, all inform his ever-evolving imagination and feed into the unusual and intriguing narratives included in his filmwork and beyond. 

Shezad Dawood works across a broad spectrum of media and his works have been exhibited in solo and group shows in the UK and internationally, including ICA, Taipei Biennial, Marrakech Biennial, MACBA Barcelona, MoMA PS1, Witte de With, Modern Art Oxford, Busan Biennale, Tate Britain and the Venice Biennale.

A John Hansard Gallery exhibition, curated in collaboration with Camilla Palestra, Shezad Dawood Studio.

Towards the Possible Film (2014) was commissioned by Film and Video Umbrella and Delfina Foundation.
