Raed Yassin was born in 1979. He graduated from the Theater Department of the Lebanese University’s Institute of Fine Arts, Beirut, in 2003, and he was awarded a research fellowship at the Akademie der Künste der Welt in Cologne in 2015. Yassin’s work often originates from an examination of his personal narratives and their position within a collective history, through the lens of consumer culture and mass production. One of the organizers of Irtijal Festival—Beirut’s experimental contemporary music festival—Yassin has released several music albums and founded the production company Annihaya in 2009. He is also a founding member of Atfal Ahdath, a Beirut-based art collective. He has exhibited and performed in numerous museums, festivals and venues, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York (2016), Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2014), Kunsthalle Wien (2015), ICA, London (2014), Gwangju Museum of Art (2014), Castello di Rivoli, Turin (2014), Kalfayan Galleries, Athens (2011 and 2014), Boghossian Foundation—Villa Empain, Brussels (2013), Mori Art Museum, Tokyo (2012), New Museum, New York (2012), Sharjah Biennial 10 (2011), Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2011), and Delfina Foundation, London (residency 2014 and 2010–2011). Yassin is also a recipient of the Sharjah Art Foundation Project Fund (2014), Abraaj Group Art Prize (2012), Fidus Prize (2009), AFAC grant for production (2010), YATF grant for production (2008 and 2012) and the Cultural Resource grant for production (2008).
